In addition to the option of remastering Grml with the tools you need, it can also be used as a "persistent" live system, with the modifications to the live filesystem saved to a partition or snapshot file, e.g. on a usb drive. This is what I would probably do to save my work over a days-long project such as building LFS; in fact, I have used Grml persistent systems for weeks or months.
Hope this helps.

Yes but sources can be download with any system (not necessarly a linux
one) ; the most important is that the lfs build is long and often people
stop and restart later ; so, they'll have to update each time the missang
packages. And, one time, I have built on a computer with no network but it
was a long time ago and the lfs livecd was uptodate ; now, there's nomore
specific lfs livecd...
