for me, it would be

  	mv -v /usr/bin/killall /bin
  	ln -sv killall /bin/pidof

However, according to LFS 6.5 build logs at

psmisc 22.8 installs binaries to /bin. Then nothing is wrong in the 
book (although I can't try this on my machine now).

Another question, who needs psmisc? Slackware does not use them, 
neither lfs-bootscripts.
