Building a LFS system

I first posted to this list as I was wondering about building a lfs box
without using a host linux box to compile the files needed to build a lfs
box and I do not want to use files with .rpm or .deb files.
I just want to get the files needed to for the lfs box and be able to just
install the file on the box and compile the other files needed so I don't
need to deal with bloat and install only what I want on my box.

I just want to build my own linux box.
