I cannot speak for the BLFS packages, as I have no control over them,
but for the LFS packages, it is done exactly as you showed. I have
tested the trunk livecd a bit, and besides (html_tidy) and a lex script
error when reaching klibc, I haven't seen any sha1sum mismatches.
Which packages are giving you trouble?
