I've finally had time to redo this stuff. The logs and files are up at

 lfs-commands.txt is a list of all the commands I ran in order to
     obtain these files. Starts with mkdir $LFS/tools.
 binu-build.greg.tar.bz2 is the tar ball of binutils pass 2 in chapter
     5 in the state you described: after make configure-host.
 c5-binu-p2-configure.greg is the log of the configure run in binutils
     pass 2 of chapter 5.
 c5-binu-p2-mch.greg is the log of make configure-host in binutils
     pass 2 of chapter 5.
 c5-binu-p2-config.log.greg is the config.log file from binutils pass
     2 of chapter 5.

     are probably of less interest; they are respectively the test_summary
     of gcc, and the log of two runs of make check of glibc. Two runs,
     because the first chokes on check-textrel as described in my very
     first post, and then the second run after applying a patch to
     disable this test.

I hope you or someone else can find something useful here.
