 In this situation, important information is almost always in the
config.log file.  The binutils configure is slightly more complex
than most, and it puts config.log files in some of the
subdirectories, so from within the build directory
 find  -name 'config.log'

 Then look at whichever of them is appropriate (or just grep them
all for 'C compiler cannot create executables').  Somewhere before
that you will see a message about the test to be run, and then an
error message from the compiler or linker listing the actual

 You seem to have a basic problem with your scripts - no tests to
ensure that everything worked ( e.g. $? == 0 ).  You are also using
'tee' to copy the output - after piping to tee, test $PIPESTATUS
because 'tee' is unlikely to fail although the command ahead of it
might.  As people have said, until you have built LFS successfully,
type the commands in.  By the time you complete it, you should have
a much better idea of how it is supposed to work.
