Did you check your $PATH variable?
I believe the directory that is returned by "gcc --print-libgcc-file-name"
Should start with /mnt/lfs/...
It looks like you are using your hosts gcc in this case.
Your $PATH variable sould start with PATH=/tools/bin;

Doesn't need to be wrong, maybe your host system is compiled for 486.
(Don't know if i am absolutely correct here though...)

That is the pattern that sed is looking for within the file
It has nothing to do with where the files are on your files system

Don't think it has anything to do with this newer kernel.
btw the lfs-6.4 book is the most recent now.
it uses the kernel. You are pointing to the lfs-6.3 book
