This sounds like the LFS variable is not set. Do an `echo $LFS' before
running the chroot command. If it prints the directory you are
installing lfs to then something else is a problem. If it prints nothing
then it means that the LFS variable is unset. In that case you need to
do something like `export LFS=/mnt/lfs' to set the variable before you
chroot. Alternatively, you can just provide the absolute directory path
to the chroot command instead of using the LFS variable in the chroot
