You can boot from a LFS CD, and then compile the dynamic versions 
directly to $LFS. But you will need to make a few changes to the install 

For example for installing findutils:
    ./configure --prefix=/usr ... &&
    make &&
    make DESTDIR=$LFS install

See the symlink style package managers (encap, etc.) for more 
information on how and why.
