I started one

I haven’t done much with it of late ( last commit was two weeks ago )
The LFS side *should* be 'ok', but might need a little interaction, I
need to grind through it again a few times

The BLFS is very unstable and requires lots of attention
for example I have not fixed xorg recursive dependencies, but there is a
sed in the readme

And, yeah sorry the scripts are a little messy, I need to clean them up.
reorder things to make them readable
Oh, the LFS script only does chapters 5 and 6 

but please, feel free to have a look and improve on it

Talented, Witty And Thoughtful .. is how most describe me.
