Have a look at this hint:

It does not exactly what you want but it might be a starting point.

Apart from that: I usually do the following after "major upgrades":

- boot the final system via LFS Live-CD
- mount all filesystems unter /mnt (except proc, sys, dev/pts)
- tar up /mnt using "tar cfpjv /some/other/path/lfs.tar.bz2 /mnt/*"
- burn the tarball onto DVD.

This makes shure that everything gets copied and that all the file and
directory permissions are set up right.
