tar doesn't exclude files on my new lfs system

I've just finished my installation of lfs 3.2-rc2. All woks fine until I
want to make a backup from the new system. I used my 'standard tar-line' to
backup the hole system without /usr/src  and /data . But no chance tar
backed up all files and does not exclude the directories as it does on my
SuSE systems.

Here's my line:
 tar -cvj --atime-preserve \
     --exclude=/data/* \
     --exclude=/usr/src/* \
     --file=/data/backup-lfs.tar.bz2 \

What's going wrong here??
Any hints???
