That depends in what you want to do with your lfs....
For instance, the amount of time needed to build an AMP (read Apache + MySQL + PHP) only, won't be the same to build an entire desktop ready system with kde or gnome.
The good thing is, since your working directly with the source you can tweak the packages during compile & install, you can deactivate options that you're sure that you won't need just to speed up the work.
BLFS is pretty generic, and I mean that it tries to cover anything you need to know to have just a linux firewall distro without X, or to build a complete X ready system.
So, is up to you, it isn't gonna be quick of course, but you can learn a ton from your effort
