Also check if $LFS/usr/bin/egrep is statically linked. See

I know you said it complained about cpp0 not found, but it may be related
if egrep didn't run, the rest of the test just got confused.

To see if gcc can find it's files, try this:

touch test.c
gcc -v test.c

You'll see some output, opening some file like a 'spec' file, trying to run
'cpp0' and more of that. Check where gcc is trying to find the files, then
check if the files actually exist when you're inside chroot.
