  I built it[1], and my full desktop from the LFS-6.1 era, on my test 
machine (from an LFS svn host running gcc-4).  That is, X-6.8.2, 
graphics libs and toolkits, gcc-3.3.5, firefox (forgot to upgrade from 
1.0.6), some of gnome from the 2.10 era, the gimp, abiword (upgraded to 
2.2.10), gnumeric.  Also a chunk of AV libraries and apps - wasn't able 
to test everything, particularly the AV stuff (no sound cable on that 
box, no DVD drive), but it certainly all built and I didn't see any 
real problems[2].

  Also tried some of kde-3.4.3 with QT 3.3.5 - seemed to work as a 
desktop, until I got fed up with the gaudiness.

  Summary - for my packages and limited usage, no regressions from 6.1.


[1] Except findutils, for some reason I had an older version in my 

[2] gimp-help was inoperative, probably a combination of 
misconfiguration and the lack of mozilla and run-mozilla symlinks for it 
to fall back to.
