The project is making a Raspberry Pi run different scripts based off which USB drive is inserted, so all I need to know is what USB drive is inserted and have some way to connect that to running a script.

apt-get is AFAIK only available on Debian and derivates. You asked for UNIX, but Linux is not UNIX - it is only close to UNIX but has several significant deviations that would prevent a UNIX certification. You should be more specific in your question to get a useful answer.
It's not really clear what you're asking. apt-get is package manager - it is used to get packages(programs) from repository, which is remote server, to your computer - and install them. However, apt-get is mostly used on Debian or Ubuntu - there are many other package managers: pacman is used by Arch, Portage is used by Gentoo, etc. Your minimalistic ...
If you want lean you could use Salix OS Core. Salix uses slapt-get which has the same interface as apt-get. If you want pure apt-get, I'd go with Debian minimal or maybe Ubuntu Server Edition if you want Ubuntu packages. LFS is probably not the right choice here - too much hard work.
If you really want apt-get, try debian with a minimal text-mode (server?) installation. LFS won't work on the rPI and is not meant to be really used as it's complicated to update. Try ArchLinux (arm) for a rPI.
