 Just to be clear - did you remove the gcc-4.8.1/ directory after
pass 1 of gcc ?  You need fresh source and build directories each
time.  I'm mentioning that because I don't remember seeing this
problem before.  If you re-used the previous source, please use
fresh source and try again.

 i686-lfs-linux-gnu-ranlib should have been installed by binutils
pass 1.  You presumably have *some* of the binutils programs,
otherwise gcc pass 1 could not have built for $LFS_TGT.

 My i686 log shows the following programs were installed.  Please
check if they are present on your build:


 and also some of them were in /tools/i686-lfs-linux-gnu/bin/ :


[ ISTR these are hardlinked to the first set ].

 Are all these files present ?  If not, which are missing ?

 Another thing to consider - did you interrupt the build and exit it,
then later come back ?  Perhaps the environment for user lfs didn't
get restored ?

das eine Mal als Tragödie, dieses Mal als Farce
