And Midnight Commander (MC) as a file-manager, which comes even with a small text-editor. I find it indispensable. MC ans its dependencies are easy to make and install.

Links is very good to browse the BLFS book. After you have installed it, it even starts from inside MC, clicking on the index-file.
