Yeah, I was using the LiveCD for a "first pass" at this because I
figured all the packages needed would already be there, and I'm building
without benefit of a network connection.  The most up-to-date release of
the LiveCD I've yet found is 6.3, r.2160.

I will definitely be giving the new book a looking at, though.

So I guess, from what you've said above, that I get to go back and re-do
most (if not all) of the toolchain?    Hey, it's about learning how,
anyway, isn't it?

Eventually, I want to use PCLinuxOS (a Texan distro, by the way) as the
base for an actual "production" LFS system - basically I want to know
how to field-strip a Linux distribution and put it back together.  Maybe
learning this will help prepare me to contribute back to a distro of choice?

Thanks for the insights.  I think I'm going to start over from the
beginning and see if any of this makes better sense the second time around.

Later On,
