I agree with Bill. Think of it this way: LFS is your base build system. 
It shows you how to create a system from sources with which you can 
build any type of system you would like. It is not intended to be a 
complete system unless all you want to do with it is build other systems.

BLFS is the instructions for building those various systems. If you want 
a desktop workstation, you build X11 and whatever applications you need. 
Database server, you pick a database and build that. Firewall, etc. etc.

-1 keep them separate.
