I wouldn't think that would work, although I don't use X. If you
have chrooted in one console, do you still have access to your X
environment in another?

The hint mentioned does not automate the build. You still must build
LFS manualy. There are only 3 simple, explained scripts based on the
very steps described in LFS that make it easier to re-enter the
special build environments and load /dev should you have to restart
your computer durring the couple days it takes to build it manualy...
