When you typed the commands, did you type $LFS
literally? $LFS may not have 
been set to /mnt/lfs or wherever your LFS partition is
mounted. So either 
don't use $LFS, and whereever you read $LFS in the
book replace it with 
your mount point (this is clearly explained in chapter
2, section "About 
$LFS"), or make sure $LFS is always set. You could put
it in your 
$HOME/.bash_profile and $HOME/.bashrc files.

I know about the $LFS and use the path (/mnt/lfs)
everywhere needed. I checked the filesystem on my
computer and found that binutils (the one created
before) was created on the right

further information: I folow 3.0 lfs book and instal
from the 3.0-rc2 package in wich Bzip2-1.0.1 is the
version I installed. 

Is it possible there might be a difference in using
PREFIX=$LFS/usr and prefix=$LFS/usr
As I'm reading trough the Makefile off Bzip2  almost
halfway I read: "PREFIX=/usr" . Does that mean the
location is unconditionaly set to /usr or does the
--PREFIX.... in the installationcommands changes this
