it's to complicated for me :-)

Yes, sure ! I tried three times ; the first time, I thought I forgot some
thing ; so I ran `userdel` and `groupdel` and began again, this two times
but the result is always the same.

yes, that's what I do for the other users but with user lfs, I follow
always exactly the book and use cut/paste for commands to avoid any typo.

While mailing on the list with you, I configure, compiled and intalled
binutils and gcc (pass 1) without any problem.
