 My guess is that /tools is broken.  Try `ls -l /' to confirm it's ok.
Also, recheck that user lfs still owns the appropriate directories.

 I'm unclear what else you had that could be cleared away, and I'll give

always use a fresh build directory for packages that need one.

 I do the same.  Sometimes I can see enough when I write to retry
