(in bottom of this message original post, sorry for the bad format)

In effect I wasn't clear when I said that I didn't make a separate partition for lfs.
I mean that I didn'n create a REAL partition on the real disk, but I make it inside the system hosted in vmWare. This virtual disk is correctly partitioned. Lfs separate partition exist and is mounted on /lfs

However I try to execute readelf -l a.out|grep ': /tools' command. removing grep and this is the result:

Elf file type is EXEC (Executable file)
Entry point 0x8048244
There are 6 program headers, starting at offset 52

I see that in effects, it point to the incorrect program interpreter, but I've looked at the spec file and I can assure that it point to /tools/lib/ld-linux.so2, so, from witch directory should I launch the command:

echo 'main(){}' > dummy.c
gcc dummy.c
readelf -l a.out | grep ': /tools'

The lfs needs to be on a separate partition from redhat if you're going to follow the book. I suggest that you follow the book until you succed and understand what's going on before trying things differently.

This means your temporary toolchain isn't configured properly. Remove the grep from that command see what a.out used as program interpreter.

Did you follow the book at least once? The faq sez

If this is your first time building LFS, using a version not in the book or varying from the book in any way is not a good idea. The IRC channel regulars have a saying, "FBBG". As rms, the resident bot, is quick to say, this means, "Follow Book, Book Good." They and the people on the lists have helped many an unhappy newbie who deviated from the book during that first build." Once you've built a system "by the book", you have a stable knowledge base from which to experiment to your heart's content (or pain, as is often the case.) "

Not using a separate partition, and using vmware, is definitely varying from the book.
