First, you are on the wrong list. If you are going to build a non-stable 
LFS release you should use either lfs-dev or lfs-hackers, depending on 
whether you are building a "testing" or "unstable" release, respectively.

This problem is already fixed in newer bootscripts releases; what 
release did you use? The book is currently at 2.1.1-pre1.

No, files that are "sourced" by bash do not need to be executable.
