No, if you do that gcc will hardcode those paths and when chroot'ed or booted 
in LFS gcc will try to find files in /mnt/lfs/usr/include and so forth. 
That's why during configure we use the paths as they will end up being on the 
LFS system and during 'make install' we override them by prefixing $LFS
