Is it possible to build your "own" copy of binutils before an LFS
build and use them instead of Fedora's ones?

For that you can try to run
../binutils-2.17/configure --some-options --prefix=/home/you/binutils
make install
export PATH="/home/you/binutils/bin:$PATH"

and then do a build exactly like the book says.

I hope this will help you.

Nothing but perfection
