 If you have followed the first 6 sections of chapter 6 explicitly, then 
you should be in chrooted /sources/Linux- or whatever kernel you
are using . You should have nothing in /usr/src.

 A pwd command will show if you have chrooted properly .There shouldn't 
be any /mnt/lfs and such in the output.

 Also be aware that you can't  chroot on one terminal and run the 
installation commands on  another open terminal. You are running 
commands on your host then and could possibly trash it.

 Stop and make sure you are where should ( chrooted to your install
