When I started BLFS I installed the HTML docs locally, then installed
links (a text-mode web browser) to read them.

Another tip: install gpm (console mouse server).  Then you can select
text (shift+mouse-drag) in your links console and paste it
(middle-button-click) into a command-line or a text editor.  This
saves a *lot* of time.

YMMV of course, but this worked very well for me.  BLFS includes links
and gpm.
