LFS is just LFS. I don't see a negative. I just don't see much of a
need to push people towards LFS when Gentoo exists. You can learn most
of what you need to know about Linux components by getting into Gentoo.
It's much like I don't recommend people bother learning assembler for
'90s (and later) superscalar processors, as C targets are almost always
more optimized than what people could possibly learn with assembler. C
teaches you the same level of computer organization.
In both cases, people who think otherwise haven't dove into the real
internals, and are still clinging to either assumptions and/or outdated
