Basically, you run the command you would use to install a package but add in -f
that way, it will just download everything. Then you can install/compile them later whether you have a connection or not.
LFS doesn't require a constant net connection either. And there's plenty of reasons why it would be worth it. Depends on the person though, I guess.
