You're missing the test suite itself. Ideas popped up to develop some kind
of grand test suite that will test every installed package from the
LFS-book. Some packages provide a 'make test' phase, some don't, we could
make up the rest, or (simple) test suites where 'make test' can't work yet
(for example in the Glibc and perl examples). No decision has been made on
my end if this will take place, I don't see it happening in the very near
future regardless.
