too smart or too dumb...depends the way you look at it ;)

Ok what you can try to do is simply copying the /lib/* files from SuSe to the 
LFS partition. You also will have to copy some files form /usr/lib probably 
(the static libraries). Don't copy all the files, so you have to do a 'ls 
/usr/lib' to see which ones belong to glibc. They have the same names as the 
ones in /lib, but just end with a .a extension.
Though conventions vary from system to system, so don't take my word for it.
