Logging helps so much when things go wrong.

I have used jhalfs time and time again and it succeeds.
You can watch the logs while it is building with tail -f.
You can find "error clues" to search google often getting ideas.

Most scripting "hard codes" specific version -- jhalfs is more reusable.

Note: jhalfs-2.3.1 on the live cd can't handle everything about
LFS-6.4 and later.
jhalfs-2.3.2 or svn-trunk is needed for LFS-6.4 and later.
Linux from scratch ALFS page tells how to download the latest version.

I only suggest this due to amount of time spent and it failing.
You can debrief what jhalfs did with its scripts in
lfs-commands/chapterXX/* and maybe detect what went wrong in handmade
