I don't use it myself, but I do know it's one of the primary causes of 
problems reported in the #lfs-support IRC channel. Granted, many of the 
problems seem to be due to users that just don't have sufficient 
experience but try it anyway (due to the fact it's mentioned in the book 
as an LFS-specific package management method), but I think that, even 
taking that into account, it's really more trouble than it's worth.
