AFAIK, in 5.0 it is dropped due to some kernel changes that no one wanted to
feed through into LFS.

I've used it on my 4.0 machine, on an external USB drive. It's been
generally very stable and very quick. The only problems occur when the
drive fills up, usually around 80%. These problems are crashes, but I've not
seen any data loss. 
This is of course very limited experience.

IMO, there is no alternative for LFS on NetBSD.
