Is glibc installed (aka libnss) and your triple-lemma-sure (uhh, what
was that? :) that /etc/group, /etc/passwd are good?

When you chroot to $LFS, it should re-read all configuration information
and not have _anything_ resembling to the previous, no hacking
RH would be just that, a hack, not fixing the problem.

Anyways, double check that libnss is installed..then get back to us..
