Perhaps you made a typo while typing that out. Either way, when Glibc
thinks it's being built with a cross-compiler, certain things aren't
installed, such as the /usr/share/zoneinfo files. You'd best reinstall
Glibc (yes you can just install it, it'll overwrite existing files with the
same version, so it won't break anything).

Either a bug in the ISDN drivers, or perhaps somehow related to the way
Glibc was built.

That's in the LFS FAQ: http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/faq/#AEN413

Also in the FAQ at: http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/faq/#AEN73
