Technically speaking it's not. However, your end result, your own LFS system 
could be viewed as a distribution (based on the LFS book) as you are free to 
take your /mnt/lfs and copy it to other systems. Or not, but you still have 
the capability of distributing.

But that's getting really into nit-picking. Then the linuxquestions site 
should say "LFS Book based distributions". For simplicity's sake LQ calls it 
an LFS distribution. It would be more politically correct if LQ 
(linuxquestions.org) would have a vote for "best linux system of the year". 
But oh well. They do mean it that way, they just use a term that's more 
familiar ie distribution.
