  You probably alredy know that clfs uses eudev. I am
  personnaly running a clfs 2.1.0 multilib 64-32 and eudev
  seems to work perfectly. Since an lfs is very close to a clfs
  (before this clfs I installed 2 or 3 lfs version so I may
  consider that I know these system quite well.) I might
  predict that eudev will work on an lfs.
