Just tested out the script, now, too. There's one more thing I noticed, 
which, if I can, I'll try to put a little time into later to 
incorporate. I'd like to see a nicer way to control the output. 
Certainly, we'd want to log as much as we can, but it's much nicer to 
have easily readable output.

For an example of what I mean, download and start the livecd build. (You 
don't need to let it run for long...)

mkdir /mnt/lfs
cd /mnt/lfs
svn co svn:// lfs-livecd
cd lfs-livecd
