Not sure if this will hel or relates but I ran into a
few errors, as I recall some were about not finding
files, when I untarred under the root user but the
compiled/make under the lfs user. If I then deleted
the source and untarred using lsf things worked fine.

Might verify who owns the working directories involved.

(My first time through so I'm still learning)
