I think there's just an incompatibility with RH's login files and LFS. 
Maybe they source a file which sets the hostname. If this file isn't 
available on LFS, you'd get that error. It's better (more LFS ;) to 
create your own login files. Check man bash and the 
configuration-howto, these contain all the info you should need. You 
can use the RH login files as templates, but it really helps if you 
understand what's in them in order to use them.
Anyway, there's no need to recompile bash or the kernel in any event. 
Hope this helps enough to get you going,
