hello Joel,
with the help of Miguel I've yesterday build a second lfs 5.1p1 system
on my server, and it seems working (except some details, cannot set or
don't really know how to set keyb-language).

this could probably confirm the above message, server arch is i686. but
I've to test operationalities now... so I will report further experience
here if you wnat.
