This is the right place.

No flames necessary :-)

Most likely what happened here, since you stopped the built part of the 
way through the process, is when you restarted the build portions of 
your partially built system were used when they should not have been.

In a situation like this, if you need to stop the build and restart from 
scratch because you made a configuration error, it's best to exit nALFS 
and remove all the directories/files that had been created up to that 
point. The LFS chapter 5 process does not work for building into an 
existing directory tree, only into an empty tree.
