Right I get it now. Did you save the tool-chain after completing the entire 
LFS (wrong) or immediately after finishing ch5 (right)? The thing is that if 
you save the toolchain after completing LFS the toolchain has been 
re-adjusted to link to stuff that won't exist yet if you're trying to re-use
