You did say that the problem is in Chapter 6, in which you are (supposed
to be) inside a chroot environment. Therefore, if you say you are in LFS
Chapter 6, and claim to be following the book, it is reasonable to
assume you are chrooted.

Probably just a guess, since you forgot to specify exactly which LFS
version you are building.

In your original message you mentioned a problem with Vi (among others)
due to the Ncurses symlinks. As LFS installs Vim, it is assumed that
when you mention Vi you mean Vim, particularly since you claim that your
host is an LFS system.

Going from what you said, I am going to have to agree with Ken here.
However, as you claim that his assumption about what you are doing is
false, you will need to specify what it is that you are actually doing.
For example, explain *how* exactly Ncurses symlinks cause problems with
Vi or Less, when neither of those should already be installed before
