I noticed these "errors" in libtool, binutils and in other packages.
They seem to be harmless.

However, you can move the build of to just before libtool to tidy
them up.  That works fine (for me).

Same here.  I assume it's harmless.

One thing I would recommend, if your shell is bash, is to run "set +h"
before building LFS.  This turns off bash's hash list and stops it
(mis-)remembering paths that change during the install.
