I'll remind you guys of that checklfs stuff that might make it into the book. 
Those scripts use installation logfiles to check your LFS installation 
against (to make sure you got the right files in the right places, and if 
you're in chapter 5 it does the additional check to make sure everything is 
statically linked). Now, checklfs will also come with the scripts that create 
these installation logfiles. That's basically your simple package manager 
there. The book won't be using the scripts as such but point out their 
existence. I've trown in a rudimentary uninstall script for free to finish it 
off. It's nowhere near perfect (but then again it's not meant as a pkg 
manager so I don't spend too much time and work on it. It's the checklfs 
script I spent most of my time on)
