I'm running two scripts before and after installing each package. They
create a list of all the files on my system using find (without
lfs-sources directory, /proc, /dev, ...). Making a diff from both listings
gets me a nice list of which files belong to which package. Feeding this
list to tar or cp lets me easily create binary packets which can be used
to create new systems with different packages installed.
