Thanks for the prompt reply, but I'm not quite to kernel compilation yet. 
In fact, the LFS system isn't even bootable yet.  It was during bootscript
configuration that I noticed the 'B' disappearance.  Beyond that, nothing
is out of the ordinary with the keyboard.  I'm using the standard us map. 
Is it possible that the file ,
/usr/share/kbd/keymaps/i386/qwerty/us.map.gz, could be somehow corrupted?
