Thanks for the help :)
Managed to get it working using this hint:
Perhaps this could bear inclusion (maybe near the cross-compiling hints?) in
book, as I'm sure quite a few people install on a non-primary HD and then

My lfs 3.2 is finally 100% running!
I'll get counted soon. Thanks for an awesome project.
