Follow http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/blfs/view/svn/basicnet/bridge-utils.html

The blfs bootscripts have a service file for bridging.

You can see how it is done.

Install bridge-utils, and put the service file in the proper place.  
The same place our clfs bootscripts installed the ipv4 and ipv4-static  
and dhcpcd service files if you did install those.

Our bootscripts are a bit different than LFS/BLFS when it comes to  
location of files. Our interface config files are in /etc/sysconfig/ 
interfaces  if I recall.

That should get  you going. You'll need to inspect the service file  
and make sure our ifup ifdn scripts will work properly. Investigate.
