I recently finished LFS5.0-pre3 and am starting BLFS. The sources and 
patches seem well integrated. No major bugs. Two minor things.

1. When describing symlinks to be made, it might be helpful to describe 
them more clearly. Ie, ln -s /path/to/target /path/to/linkname . Copy 
and pasting the text to the command line works fine though.

2. After logging in at boot, the console is left in a abnormal state due 
to reserving room at the top of the screen for the penguin graphic. This 
causes man, less, and probably other programs to malfunction. Alt Fn and 
back clears this, as will reset . Clear  won't. I finally resolved this 
by putting a one line shell script (reset -Q) in init.d and calling it 
through the init runlevel system.

These were very minor. All in all, well done to the developement team. :)
