Both are right.
When compiling the static packages it's good to have them is /static/src.
When compiling dynamicly we move them to there final location /usr/src.
You're doing it right from what I see in the lines bellow.

May I make a small first note: There are two packages-4.1 - FILEutils and
'install' comes from 'fileutils'.
First, check if you have the /usr/bin/install binary.
If it is there, check if it is a static binary...

Wait a minute! Your ch. 5 'install'  binary is under /static....
Check your $PATH first, please...

BTW: This should go to lfs-support, not blfs.
