 I've seen postings from people who apparently managed to build it at
the start of chapter 6, but I never managed (might possibly be an
architecture issue, the people succeeding seemed to be on i686), and
since I'm planning to move to pure_lfs real soon now, I've mostly stuck
with 2.3.1.  I saw a post from somebody who had just built lfs with 2.3.1,
and then built 2.3.2 at the end, and it seemed to work.  I've recently
built chapter 6 on my iBook with 2.3.1 at the beginning and then 2.3.2 at
the end.  It appears to work, but I've a lot of iBook specifics to sort
out (not least, getting a good kernel with a better config) before I can
give it a thorough test.

 Out of the darkness a voice spake unto me, saying "smile, things could be
worse". So I smiled, and lo, things became worse.
