This looks like a socket layer failure. It might be that it's attempting
to set up some sort of socket connection to something. Is your ethernet
hooked to anything?

It does not look serious to me, but I'm not an expert on LFS. It looks
like there is an expected agent to respond to a socket request, but
which is not there. That's why I wondered about an ethernet chip and
cable. If you have a chip, then it possibly is trying to make a
connection to a "well known" IP site, for which there is no access
on your (preumably) isolated system.
