I do the same thing for the LFS/BLFS books. Hourly.

I've always been really anal about hand checking the instructions in
the book vs. my build scripts when I build a fresh LFS. However, having
a Chapter 5 build, ready to go, sounds like a great idea.

Thanks for the great idea, Jeremy.

Automating LFS has never been really a goal for me. However, it's time
I looked into, and started using the jhalfs tool.
