Bad terminology on my part when I said portable I mean small, light, runs off cdrom/usb/virtual machine and is always a clean environment (or aims to be).

I know Rob was using LFS build scripts to test his little project and it was mostly intended as a busybox replacement that I think they decided to push a bit further.

Now my curiosity is going, guess I will head over and see what’s up.
