Stefan, no it doesn't, nor, I think, will it.  Presently, efforts to
build LFS using Reiser4 have failed.  Glibc has the tendency to error
out.  Reiser4 may however, make a good file system for storage and you
could always consider adding that support and a Reiser4 partition after
you've completed your build with the cd.

Personally, I love reiserfs, and would like to see Reiser4 reach
stability.  If it can be shown to me that it has, and it makes a
workable filesystem for building LFS, I would consider putting it on
future cds.
