Check your $LFS/etc/inittab file, something's probably wrong there. Or
$LFS/etc/rcS.d/ doesn't contain any valid symlinks. Right now the rc and
rcS script silently ignore broken symlinks (which is a bad thing, it will
fixed soon) which makes it appear it's not entering rcS.d

we got it twice, but don't worry about it.
