Well... not really.  When you say "rebuild LFS" do you mean, start all over 
at chapter 1?  That's what I'm getting at - say I have a good LFS going and 
kernel 2.6 comes along (I'm really looking forward to having alsa support 
built in so I don't have to mess with a separate set of drivers)... when I 
install the new kernel, will I need to (a) do nothing else, (2) also 
rebuild glibc and/or gcc and/or binutils, or (5) blow away all of LFS and 
start over from chapter 1?
