 But, given that most LFS (and BLFS) developers think using anything
other than x86 is unsupportable, CLFS is the only way to go for other
architectures.  And yes, pretending to cross-compile does work for
native builds.  There is a long tradition of using LFS on ppc, but
the book doesn't directly support it.

 And as others have already noted, yes you are absolutely correct
that the linker information is not at the start of the line.
