Why not GNU/Linux From Scratch

Just my two cents, but what happens when you use utilities from the
BSD toolchain on your system as well (like libarchive).  Does it
become GNU/BSD/Linux From Scratch?  What if you have pieces with other
licensing arrangements (zlib, etc.) or you're using llvm or some other
compiler in place of GNU gcc?  Do you change the name again?  Linux
from Scratch is a pretty well-known name and it pretty much sums up
what it is, a way to build Linux from Scratch.
