 I'm just at the end of a test build of ch6, and `mount' from within
chroot shows a _very_ confusing picture (partly down to a variation to
support my scripts).  This makes me wonder what mount will show from a
terminal outside chroot?  You should get something like

/dev/something on /mnt/lfs type ext3 (rw)
proc on /mnt/lfs/proc type proc (rw)
devpts on /mnt/lfs/dev/pts type devpts (rw)

 Apologies if you've correctly grokked the output of mount from within
chroot ;)
