i'll try it! i don't even know then a so usefull package exist!
Are you building the lfs system in a chroot environment under debian?
I have used mepis (debian based distro, livecd or fast install on hd) to
build lfs.

Yes, me too.
I'm thinking to start from the debian source, modify the configuration files
in the /debian directory and build the binary package.
For build a debian base system i have used debootstrap, so i have see what
packages are necessary.
After this i would create a simplier package structure for lfs (3-4 packages
from debian -> 1 package for lfs), mainly for the dependecies problem.
The last stage is to use anaconda for debian to install the system.

Maybe we can move the thread to blfs.support?

I don't have much spare time, maibe i must use it also to learn english :-)
