Compared to the ubuntu-CD, the keyboard works fantastically with your
lfs-CD. Keyboard works, after I have booted the CD.
But: It works also before I booted the kernel; it works in syslinux,  
(for example to write linux64).
After I tested lfs, I tested ubuntu again (to be sure, that apple hasn't
changed my firmware) and ubuntu doesn't have keyboard-support
in syslinux.
