What I don't understand is why networking is needed in chroot at all. 
You can have two windows open: standard (virtual terminal, x window, ssh 
window, etc) and a chroot window,  Do the network downloads in the 
standard window to /mnt/lfs/whatever and build from the chroot window.

In my case, I have two ssh windows open to the box I'm building on, one 
standard and the other is where I did the chroot.
