Well done. Now the real fun starts, as BLFS, from what I've seen, contains a lot of really big stuff.

I've done LFS a couple of times, but never did BLFS. After LFS I usually continued the way I wanted, which was aiming towards KDE, which by itself already has lots of dependencies and takes really long to compile.
I know of no package that takes longer to compile than KDE-Base.

I'd say GNOME and it's dependency and 50 other libs that need to be compiled before you actually get to compile GNOME itself takes way longer.

I just finished LFS 6.4 myself with package management installed, with this I hope to make future builds a lot easier, my package management system is derived from slackware's pkgtool and scripts. So when a new version comes out, all I need to do is change the version numbers and patches and other misc fixes and it's all ready t be packaged.

In total I guess yes. And although I have never completely installed Gnome from source (as it's a terrible pain in the ass to compile) I still guess that KDE-Base is the one single package that takes the longest.

I got something similar for LFS-installation. The whole system gets installed by a big pile of scripts.
I just took the liberty to "stray" a bit from the LFS-book, by not following descriptions too close and adding some stuff (like PAM, RPM or SELinux, some of that stuff is optional).

Quite some work though.
