I believe that once you get binutils-pass1 and gcc-pass1 built, the
rest should be robust enough to work fine. Of course, since it's your
first time, you might hit another speed bump or two, but you're past
the difficult part.

Actually, this is an old issue, and I think the problem was just that
no one had a really good solution. Basically, every time Fedora
releases a new version, they build and enable the most bleeding edge
toolchain possible. Only a few daring people here can keep up with
that kind of pace. And the stable LFS build is almost certainly behind
the times.

Greg at DIY came up with this workaround (AFAIK). It seems to work be
correct, if making the commands a little uglier. One other possible
solution is to build the old *-compat-* toolchain packages for Fedora,
but that would probably be even uglier in the end to explain how to
enable it.

You're welcome. I envy you heading out on your first build.
