Alas! Fabio Fracassi spake thus:

You are right, of course. I do need Reiserfs support in my kernel in
order to mount and use the disk to do my lfs on.

The question I was asking, though, was whether or not I would need
reiserfs support in my kernel in order to do the actual _formatting_ of
the disk, and the answer is no. I was able to compile, install, and
run the reiserfs tools without reiserfs support in my kernel.

Thanks though, I've got my own kernel recompiled with reiserfs support
and I've got /mnt/lfs formatted as reiserfs, mounted and ready to go.
