So have I, but it's double work.  What I have done previously is save the source trees, and
after the system is bootable, rerun make install through installwatch through a package
managent script I've been playing with, which worked wonderfully but was a pain.  What I'm
working on now is a script that calls make install or whatever after creating a time stamp
and then runs find to create the same type log, all from the chroot.

I'll have to try Rod's lfsmake after I get a working 2.4 the old fashioned way.
