Wasn't really, I found the problem:

current LFS CVS instructions for net-tools are "make && make update",
which is wrong (see the file INSTALLING in the tarball).

Using the current method, you can specify any options you like, make
will only use and build the default ones.

Correct instructions are: "make config && make && make update".
