Are you certain it creates the symlink in /root? Did you read the
note in the book about reporting this problem before examining
the info page?

If you follow the instructions in the book it should create
the link in root directory of the host system's tree. Something
like this:

tools -> /mnt/lfs/tools

It's crucial the link is in the root of the host system's tree.
