I probably don't understand what you mean. But if you mean that you want to build an LFS system and compile the packages used by a Fedora system, then I would think you're in for a long and difficult struggle. Considering that a default Fedora system uses heavy-weight things like Gnome, Firefox, LibreOffice, SELinux, I would rather begin a foot journey to the moon than try to compile and configure those things and their vast collections of equally difficult dependencies. I maintain an LFS system myself and managed to get it to a fully functional state in terms of capabilities, but I chose alternate applications such as Fluxbox, AbiWord, Gnumeric, Opera, and so on. I'm currently working with AppArmor to sort of take the place of SELinux, and compiling that reportedly simpler application is very effectively plowing me into to the cold hard dirt at the moment. And I haven't even gotten to the steps to create and adjust profiles for it. Of course do what you think is best.
P.S.: Maybe you could compile the RPM package manager into your LFS system and use it to install and manage complex packages and suites. People have done it.
