I have had problems installing the glibc-Software.
It turned out that the lfs-book assumes the linux-sources be unpacked
under /usr/src/ ...
while they talked about organising the packages under /usr/src/sources/a 
... /usr/src/sources/z

try to install the kernel by hand and look for errors.

I am not sure, but it might help
