It's easy enough to create a tarball of binaries for a specific 
architecture (686, x86_64, etc) and extract that to an empty partition. 
  A rebuild of the kernel, setting up grub, and a script to handle some 
specific things (fstab, ip address, etc) would be easy enough.

But then, I don't think of that as LFS.
