I used a custom ubuntu 12.04 live cd to build LFS, though I understand we're talking about 12.10 here, the detail I'm noting is this:  the make dependencies weren't in the LiveCD system by default so I had to put them in manually.
While creating the Live CD, you enter a chroot environment to make sure everything is in place properly...  run "apt-get install build-essential" while inside, and you'll get all of the necessary -dev packages...  don't forget the other items inidcated by the hostreqs page, of course.
