lfs boots, but where's the login prompt??

I had that problem once - it was because I'd changed to devfs, and my 
getty couldn't find /dev/tty cause devfs puts terminal devices under 
/dev/vc/* . So, that could well be the problem. I'd guess if that's not 
it then it's _something_ to do with devices, and it's almost certainly 
got something to do with your getty.
