I've just reproduced the problem with latest HJL Binutils. FSF release is

Therefore, because LFS is currently using FSF Binutils, you *can* safely
remove --disable-nls from the build. Not that I would do that. It's wiser
to keep the cmds compatible with both FSF and HJL.

I really wish HJL would prepare his releases more formally. ie: in a
proper "make dist" type fashion. It would also get rid of the need to have
Bison and Flex available... Grrr.
