I wasn't able to find such a thing. It sure would have been useful.
For my first LFS build, I copied the config file from my host system, then
started menuconfig and read the help info for almost every option. I ended
up turning off most of the stuff from the host system, so on the second
build I just started with the default. It took me several hours in multiple
sittings to go through the menuconfig: reading the help, scanning the
Documentation directories, scouring the /proc file system for interesting
tidbits, etc. But, my system did boot first time around, and I learned one
heck of a lot.
