And completely miss the value of using LFS - that is to *read* and 
*understand* the concepts behind building an LFS system.  If you just 
want an automated way of building from source, go grab Gentoo's images. 
  If you want to *learn* how to put such a system together yourself, why 
and how it works, then read LFS and follow it.
