I haven't even gotten to that point yet so the ln to the 
tools dir isn't possible right now. I think I've found the 
cause though: no gcc installed. I'm doing a quick upgrade on 
the system to install all the required packages and will see 
how the LFS build goes then. One of the problem with taking 
a system you not touched in about 4 months as a starting 
point is that you might not remember what you put on it!
