Q: why are the auto-tools in LFS and not BLFS?

I'd always taken it for granted that m4, autoconf, automake etc. had
to be in LFS, but recently I thought "Hang on! The auto-tools are
*development* tools, not build tools. Building auto-tooled software
only requires a shell, make, sed etc. You don't need autoconf and
friends unless you want to develop software.".
So, since creating an LFS system only requires building existing
software, why does it include the auto-tools? Could we not move them
to BLFS? What am I missing here?
