You are using a very old version of LFS apparently. It hasn't been a HOWTO 
for a very long time. It's a book now. There are a lot of things that have 
been improved upon since it changed into a book, no more installing almost 
every package static before rebooting, we don't even have to reboot in 
between anymore. You want to go to the LFS website and download the latest 
version of the book which is version 2.4.3 at the moment.

Advice is to start From Scratch again.
