Toolchain for current (unstable) book

I've been an LFS user for a few years now, but decided to try HLFS 
(experimentally), during a system rebuild. Understanding that it is 
"unstable" I'm still confused about the following:

1. The current unstable book uses ${target} and ${ldso} for the Chapter 5 
builds, but the documentation for how to define these seems to have been 
deleted from more recent versions of the book. I'm not sure if this 
represents a move away from GCC as a cross compiler or whether it is an 
oversight but, either way, the inconsistency breaks the build.

2. The Chapter 5 test of the Toolchain following the build of GCC and 
installation of ld from the earlier binutils build will fail because 
crt1.o and related files have not been installed in the /tools path (in 
fact, glibc is not installed, at all, in Chapter 5).

There are a few other issues, as well, but the fact that I haven't gotten 
the above, correctly, makes me suspicious that the subsequent builds are 
not done correctly (like the fact that "ldconfig" and "sln" exit with SSP 

The system I am building from is an LFS 6.0 CD with Linux 2.6.8 and GCC 

Am I missing something?
