Ideally, yes, it should be in the book.  However, if for some reason 
that's unfeasable, because of limitations in the XML or whatever the 
case may be, then my feeling is it could be easily written up as a hint 
format - it'd probably only be a 2 paragraph hint, something like:

If you're building for a single machine, instead of rebooting as the 
book suggests, skip building packages a,b,c,d, and when instructed to 
reboot, execute the following command instead:

chroot $LFS blah blah blah.

A hint should be as simple as that - eliminate any packages from the 
initial tools that won't be needed because of the chroot, and instead of 
rebooting, chroot.
