In looking at the build page of Avahi, it looks like I need an X environment to have it build and run.  That’s too much to do with my current plans.  I think I’ll have to settle for only NFS and wait to do the other things until I build my whole distro.

You don’t need an X environment on the LFS box to run Avahi and Netatalk.
With your Mac as client and the LFS box as server, you easily transfer files between the Mac and the LFS box (in both directions) by dragging them in the Finder.  The LFS box is shown by the Finder like any other local disk/partition.
