The issue I have with that statement is that we'd write a second book just to 
cover all that. Instead we just stick to the absolute essentials 
(nsswitch.conf, syslog.conf, inittab, setting up keyboard, etc). Configuring 
every single program is a huge undertaking to add to the LFS book. Instead 
it's probably a lot better for various reasons (educational value included) 
to have people configure the software _they use_ for themselves.
