If you get into chap6 and you get the following

Starting preconfigure
Starting unpack
Unpacking   : /lfs-sources/findutils-4.1.tar.bz2
Destination : /usr/src
Done unpacking /lfs-sources/findutils-4.1.tar.bz2.

Unpacking   : /lfs-sources/findutils-4.1.patch.gz
Destination : /usr/src
Can't exec "gunzip": Permission denied at alfs line 376.

What is wrong here is both gzip and gunzip do not have
the right permissions in $LFS/bin. I tried adding two 
<system_command> chmod, elements to change the 
permissions, but people are still running into these 

The simple fix is to stop alfs. Chmod the two files
and then restart alfs. BTW, you can always in your 
profiles, delete the previous <package>'s so you 
don't have to go through those again...
