After chroot (chapter 6), no "mount" command to mount proc.

I installed util-linux as follows...

./configure &&
make -C lib &&
make -C mount LDFLAGS=-static mount umount &&
cp mount/{mount,umount} $LFS/static/bin

I don't fully understand (yet) all of the syntax, but that's how I
installed util-linux. Should I have done it differently?

It looks like something went wrong when installing the 
static version
of util-linux. You could retry that, and run the mount 
from inside
chroot. but I would recommend using the host's mount
