There is a command called 'tee' that a lot of folks use for this.
It would look something like

    make 2>&1 | tee make.log

This runs make, make error messages follow standard output, '2>&1' and
pipes all that into program tee. Tee copies the input it is receiving to a
file named 'make.log' and also display the stuff it receives on the
screen. When it is done, you can use less or an editor to look at make.log
and see if there are errors.

When you run another command, you may choose a new file name if you want
to keep the other one.

Someone else will probably be able to help you with this.

Generally, read the FAQ from LFS - it is a good resource for the types of
errors you seem to be having. Other than that, use google searches for
linuxfromscratch archives to help yourself get answers more quickly than a
post to these list might get the you an answer. Since you are new to
LFS/Linux, find the Linux Documentation Project (TLDP?) website. There are
*lots* of FAQs and tutorials there that will help you get going on some of
the basic Linux stuff you will need to know. A good starting point is the
one on bash or shell.
