The base bash time seems to be slow for your system.  Mine was 141 sec 
for a 667MHz/128MB, Gcc 3.1, P3 system.  If you have IDE hard disk(s), 
did you use hdparm to tune them?  (I did).

[root at lfs3 ~]# hdparm -tT /dev/hda

  Timing buffer-cache reads:   128 MB in  0.69 seconds =185.51 MB/sec
  Timing buffered disk reads:  64 MB in  2.91 seconds = 21.99 MB/sec

Just to check, I went back to check my bash times in more detail:
configure    51.56 sec
make         84.90 sec
make install  0.41 sec

For a total of 136.87 sec.
