Well, it's your call. To put it into the website script, replace your 
"#ALFS CVS" tag with:

pushd $ALFS/nALFS &&
sh ./bootstrap &&
./configure &&
make dist &&
mv nALFS-CVS.tar.bz2 $TMPDIR/www/alfs/downloads/cvs &&

However, that would rebuild the snapshot as often as the site itself 
is rebuilt, rather than only once per day as a separate cron job would 
likely do. At the moment, it appears that I do not have write access 
to /home/httpd/*, so my own cron script 
couldn't put the tarball there directly.
