You're mail is very badly formatted, but I'll try to answer your 
question anyway. You really shouldn't try to install glibc from outside 
of chroot since this will overwrite your host-distro's glibc. The error 
from /usr/bin/env referrs to $LFS/usr/bin/env. Does it exist? Is it 
statically linked? Check with ldd $LFS/usr/bin/env. If it lists some 
libraries you'll have to reinstall sh-utils statically from chapter 5. 
Make sure you type the commands exactly as in the book, copy and paste 
to rule out typo's (it's more common than you think! :)
