1. The ones in your distro are probably standard, and most systems (including
LFS) follow that pattern.

2. Try just 'ls -la', I'll bet some of the output is colorized. Somewhere,
you've got the line 'ls'='ls --color=always', change it to 'ls'='ls
--color=auto', this is because less doesn't except color and those weird
characters are ANSI escape codes...

3. See John's reply.
