I agree with your comment about divergence.  The other packages you 
mention are needed by many packages in BLFS, not just systemd.

LFS has never been about building a minimal system.  For instance, 
automake/autoconf are not needed to complete lfs.  They are however needed 
for several packages in blfs and have been in lfs from the beginning.
