"Chapter 5  packages are built using this second pass toolchain. When 
this is done, the LFS installation process will no longer depend on the 
host distribution, with the exception of the running kernel."

"the instructions in this book are known to work, with some 
modifications, with both Power PC and 64-bit AMD/Intel CPUs. To build a 
system that utilizes one of these CPUs, the main prerequisite, in 
addition to those on the next few pages, is an existing Linux system 
such as an earlier LFS installation, Ubuntu, Red Hat/Fedora, SuSE, or 
other distribution that targets the architecture that you have."
