Yes, I followed the book, a SVN version contemporaneous with the LFS-7.2
I installed (20121102).

However, I am just discovering a couple glitches I didn't know I had,
but don't know for sure how to solve.

xfdesktop: Thumbnailer failed on calling GetFlavors
xfce4-session: Querying CanRestart failed, Failed to connect to socket
/var/run/dbus/system-bus-socket. Permission denied.

Two more of the last for CanShutdown, etc.

/var/run/dbus is 770  (Should be 777?  Could be my fault, I rewrote all
the init bootscripts.)
/var/run/dbus/system-bus-socket is 4777
