Do you have the /tools symlink in / ?  The paths here aren't right. 
Here's what the same line looks like from a successful compile of

checking for i686-pc-linux-gnu-gcc...  /tools/src/build/gcc-build/gcc/xgcc -B/to
ols/src/build/gcc-build/gcc/ -B/tools/i686-pc-linux-gnu/bin/ -B/tools/i686-pc-li
nux-gnu/lib/ -isystem /tools/i686-pc-linux-gnu/include -isystem /tools/i686-pc-l

You should be in the directory /tools, not $LFS/tools.  While they're
physically the same, the book expects that the directories will be
referenced relative to /tools.  If you haven't been in this directory
the whole time, you'll probably have to start over.

If you want, you can read the file config.log on the top level.  There
will be a series of errors in this file.  The last one towards the
bottom of the file will describe the failed test that led to configure
determining "cannot run C compiled programs."  You can try to debug
