I'm confused. What's LFS for? It help people to known how a linux 
system works and build a linux system piece by piece, isn't it?
Let me express the problem as this:
If I build a LFS with package management just like Ubuntu, and I 
want to upgrade a package witch is relevant to a lot of other packages.
How can I do this?
Thanks Alberto's reminder.
