 Agreed.  For *any* recent version of LFS, the development versions
of BLFS are likely to have fewer problems.

 The only issue I can see with pointing people to the development
BLFS is that, at least in theory, it can change under them -
sometimes such changes are good (unrelated updates, fixing problems),
other times thay are invasive (e.g. if gnome or xorg change - those
sorts of changes also typically take several days).

 OTOH, if the bootscript changes in LFS-7.0 have nasty knock-on
effects on BLFS daemons (dunno, I haven't looked, I'm still
preparing to move my server to 6.8), using a version of
BLFS-bootscripts that suits 7.0 won't support earlier LFS versions.
But, if that is indeed the case, I'm sure Bruce will come up with
something.  Hopefully, I'm just imagining a possible problem that
doesn't exist.
