I had an aborted prior build and it failed on me:

mkdir: cannot create directory `../binutils-build': File exists

It looks like we need todo something like:

  find /mnt/lfs/sources -maxdepth 1 -type d | grep /mnt/lfs/sources/ |
xargs -0 /bin/rm -rf

The grep is necessary because find also returns /mnt/lfs/sources which
we do not want to remove.
