 I think you've missed one of the symlinks in section 6.6 ?

ln -sv /tools/lib/{,.1} /usr/lib

 Linking these to /lib probably means the temporary versions in
/tools will still be found after the final gcc has been installed,
until you reboot.  That is unlikely to be a problem, but the book's
version of the symlinks is cleaner and ought to avoid your problem.
