Yeah, that certainly doesn't look healthy :)  Do you happen to have 
'strace' installed on your host?  If you run 'strace 
/mnt/lfs/sources/binutils-' it may 
provide some clues as to what's going wrong.  It looks as if your host's 
toolchain may be buggy (though I doubt that), unless you're providing 
optimisation or other flags via CFLAGS?
