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.
