A couple of thing first.
1.  Please don't top post on the lfs mailing lists.
2.  You probably can get better support on blfs-support.  This list is 
for the development of the book.

Many people have built X successfully.  Errors are usually traced to 
missing a step somewhere in LFS or in one of the prereq packages.

Look through the compile log for *** strings to make sure you don't have 

Delete the xc directory and re-extract
Try building XFree86 with no host.def file.  It will use all the defaults.
