Really, the only thing that's different through the end of Chapter 6 is 
adding new packages.  Skipping systemd and adding eudev is all that is 
needed to do a straight traditional build (with a few packages from 
BLFS).  D-Bus is not started by default in the System V setup, but the 
binaries are built and installed.

There is one minor change in sysvinit when there are four lines that 
move files.  If systemd is not installed, those are not needed.  The 
scripts in the new 7.1 section are not needed either.  For System V, 
everything else is the same.

Not yet.  At least not to my satisfaction.

What we do need to support how to do that, but users like you will need 
to customize for your specific needs.

Of course.   And I want to explain the basics in Chapter 7 to get you 
started.  Really it is a set of new configuration files with new formats 
in new locations.   However there is a method to their madness and 
LFSers should be able to pick it up relatively quickly.
