It's exactly the same problem as the others so also the same solution ;)
When you try to work around it by only using chroot $LFS, it will try to 
use the default /bin/sh, which isn't there yet. 
And running /tools/bin/env by itself also works cause then it's still 
ch5 and it sees the libs in your host, when chrooting those libs aren't 

It's most of the times one of these 2 issues:
1) The specfilechange wasn't done as it was supposed to.
2) Your PATH variable didn't have /tools/bin at the front while 
compiling the packages.
