Those different programs use different functions from the C libraries. It's 
possible that the library ended up partially corrupt.

Other reasons for mysterious seg faults are hardware problems such as a bad 
CPU or RAM. If you have any spares, try swapping it out.

If it's a software issue related to Glibc, you could boot from a LFS LiveCD 
and build yourself a new Glibc and install that into your LFS system, 
overwriting the current Glibc. That might fix the problems right away.
