No, LFS uses IPRoute2 by default.  It is a much better tool, however you 
can add net-tools from BLFS if you absolutely cannot bring yourself to 
use /sbin/ip for everything.  Take a look at the ipv4 script in 
/etc/sysconfig/network-devices/services directory for the common use 
examples.  Or see net-tools (which is where ifconfig comes from):
