I have successfully built, installed and ran LFS-7.2 on i686 and x_86_64 
platforms pretty much using the books instructions.  The only changes 
were very small to incorporate a package manager, nothing major.

I only thing I had a problem on was udev in which I had to add 
-ludev-local.a to LDFLAGS.

In chapter 8.3. Linux-3.5.2I have used make defconfig in the kernel 
build process although I needed to use this patch I generated, which 
adds devtmpfs as it isn't selected in the defconfig configuration.

I can safely say that the books instructions are correct and will result 
in a working system if properly followed.

Thanks every one for your hard work!

After some cleanup work I shall proceed to BLFS-SVN in the time frame of 
next week.

I just may get a home brew system finished after all ;)
