I can get it to work.

I don't understand your comment.

There are many subtle things going on in a complex task like building 
LFS.  Sometimes very knowledgeable people have problems because they 
make assumptions that are different from what is written.

I suggest that you start over.  Pay close attention to Section vii - 
Host System Requirements and then follow the book closely.  It's 
perfectly acceptable to deviate from the book, but don't complain if 
your changes cause a problem.  Note that we have scripts that extract 
the commands directly from the book's sources and build the whole system 
(mostly) automatically.  We know that what is in the book works.

The SVN version should work as well as the 7.2 version, but it isn't 
tested quite as well.

We also ask that you delete non-relevant info.  The above is fine, but 
90% of your post is/was not relevant to the above.
