Not really a cheat sheet...but you want the latest version from SVN.  It 
uses the same config interface as the kernel's make menuconfig and is 
pretty much self explanatory.

svn co svn://svn.linuxfromscratch.org/ALFS/jhalfs/trunk jhalfs-20081011 &&
cd jhalfs-20081011 &&
# if you do not choose the "Run the makefile" option, then 'cd 
$LFS/jhalfs && make'

If you want a mostly completed build, then you will have to do a few 
other things, like make a .config file available in your sources 
directory for the kernel build, a pre-made fstab, etc, everything from 
chapter 7 on.  I usually like to do those parts manually anyway.
