Well, it should be. The trunk branch may be broken, especially due to
recent script adjustments, so there is that. Also, trunk is targeted for
LFS trunk, so the kernel requirement would be a bit stringent.

Yes, this is because of Xorg - it likes to be built on a machine with the
same kernel version as the target machine. Read the BLFS page for Xorg.

You need to have a *matching* kernel version. However, if you're building
for a 6.1-3 iso, you're not going to want to use trunk. The 6.1-2 livecd
should work fine as a host, because the 6.1-3 iso will still be using the
same LFS base versions.  You need to grab the 6.1-2 tagged scripts from

svn co svn://svn.linuxfromscratch.org/livecd/x86/tags/6.1-2 lfs-livecd

Thanks. :) However, I like to do that personally as just one more step in
quality assurance. Nothing personal at all.

Bugzilla isn't very hard. :)
