Peter,
This comes up so often in the lists, you *really* should read the Book and
FAQ more carefully.  You have read the FAQ have'nt you?

       http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/faq/

Specifically:

      http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/faq/#should-i-keep-sources

ALWAYS use a freshly unpacked copy of the source of any package before the
Chapter 6 installation.  Even 'make distclean' isn't guaranteed to get
everything back as it should be.  The only exception might just be those
packages that are installed from a -build directory, but in that case you
must delete the old -build.

Anyway, you are to be congratulated for getting though chapter5, although
there is still a lot of work, chapter 6 is usually less prone to problems.
Best wishes,
Richard.
