I didn't have any logs handy so just recompiled and installed binutils 
somewhere - your install log ends prematurely - I think you may have a 
permissions problem. Is there anything in /tools at all? Things to check 
(assuming LFS=/mnt/lfs):

/mnt/lfs/tools should exist and be owned by user lfs
/tools should be a symbolic link to /mnt/lfs/tools

Check these and report. You should be able to simply do a make install from 
the binutils-build directory if the above are correct.

Cheers - Allard.
