If you went by the book you should have created those links in Chapter 5

       cd $LFS/lib &&
       ln -s ../usr/lib/gcc-lib/*/2.95.2/cpp cpp &&
       cd $LFS/usr/lib &&
       ln -s gcc-lib/*/2.95.2/cpp cpp &&
       cd $LFS/usr/bin &&
       ln -s gcc cc

The problem is that those links should not point to
usr/lib/gcc-lib/*/2.95.2/cpp, but to /usr/bin/cpp.

I've added it to the todo for 3.0.
