The sequence in the book is correct.
In ch. 5 we install the programs from the fileutils package under /static.
As I can see, you have /static/bin in your PATH so, no need to add anything.
You must have missed fileutils in ch. 5 (before chroot). Search for
'install' under /static/bin.
In ch. 6 we install findutils before fileutils because we already have a
static version of them.

On my first answer I replied to lfs and blfs support lists. Since you
answered to the (wrong) list, I'm sending this to you personally with Cc to
lfs-support. Answer there please.
