well, lfs is a pretty ambitious project.

after a long hiatus from building kernels, i recently built a kernel using LFS.
to me, the 6.5 book is top caliber.  my goal coming to LFS was simply to 
build a bootable kernel, not learn all the in and outs of kernel construction.
LFS succeeded resoundingly.

if i were an LFS contributor, my problem would be that the 
audience is too broad.  clearly some of the complaints are done
by folks who have trivial experience building large oss systems.

if a neophyte of lfs upon failure is not willing to wipe everything
and truly start from scratch, perhaps many times, before posting 
to this list, then perhaps that neophyte is not ready to leave the temple.
