I read LFS instructions on the Kindle when I was trying to compile my
own kernel some months back. But all that I did was have Amazon convert
LFS's PDF file to the Kindle format. Amazon's PDF conversion capabilities
not quite upto scratch back then. So it took a couple of attempts.

But I guess you have something else in mind. Could you not, however,
post someone's existing Kindle format file on Amazon?
