I guess also on a more personal note, I also do some "Hurd from Scratch"
from time to time and I enjoy the fairly generic taste of LFS.  I guess
in my perfect world all that would be needed to transform LFS into Gnu

obviously Linux centric (ie. util-linux).  I know that's not really
aplicable to _Linux_ From Scratch. but it is part of my own motivation.
Sort of like Ian's x86 centric vs. cross platform argument but from a
slightly different angle.  (this is also one reason I am looking forward
to the switch from LILO to GRUB)
