 So, gcc -dumpmachine thought you were on i486, but the things you
had built were for i686.

 You seem to be in /LFS when I would really expect you to be in /
(that is, /mnt/lfs) although you are root.  This sort of suggests you
aren't in chroot, in which case you have probably trashed the files
in /tools.

 I guess your host thinks it's i486 (Slackware, perhaps).  If so,
that would explain your results.

 Unless you have a backup from before the cp (that is, a backup from
the end of chapter 5), I think you will have to go back to the
beginning.  And no, I _don't_ recommend taking a backup at the end
of chapter 5 unless you are experimenting with buildscripts or new
instructions for adjusting the toolchain.

 The big question is, did you forget to chroot, or did the command
to do so fail ?
