that's the kernel version, not the gcc version. Totally different package.

Then GCC isn't statically linked. Exit chroot, run "ldd $LFS/usr/bin/gcc".
If it's dynamically linked, reinstall GCC in chapter 5. Make sure you
didn't make any typo's.

The fact that you can run it fine outside chroot is because your host
distribution has Glibc installed, so you can run a dynamically linked
program. Inside chroot Glibc isn't installed yet, so this won't work. The
message "no such file or directory" in this case doesn't mean that
$LFS/usr/bin/gcc is missing, but that /lib/ld-linux.so.2 is missing.
