Is it possible to build BLFS on top of LFS 7.2?

I just finished with LFS 7.2, and want to start with BLFS. But as long as I see the latest BLFS version is from 2008, and it says that it can be build on top of LFS 6.3. I'm just curious whether someone have build BLFS on top of LFS 7.2?

Right. Unlike LFS which is released in discrete "books" about every six months, the BLFS book is now sort of like a daily rolling release. Stuff is being added to it all the time. So it never really is finished. I like it this way. But here's something you should know (IMO)... Because of what I just described, you might encounter things along the way that are wrong, or don't work, or need to be brought to the attention of the maintainers. Simple typos, for example. Or busted stuff that needs a sed to fix something in the source, for another example. Things like that. For a new project, I usually download the current svn of the day and try to stick with it. But it almost never fails that I have to look at a newer version for a fix of some problem. Occasionally, I start tickets at the wiki about things like that. I also still go backwards to an older version for things that got dropped from the book but I still want.
