You're missing a few there. Sounds like you didn't prepare your chroot 
very well before entering it again :)

 From Chapter 6

"mount -t proc proc $LFS/proc
mount -t sysfs sysfs $LFS/sys

Remember that if for any reason you stop working on the LFS system and 
start again later, it is important to check that these file systems are 
mounted again before entering the chroot environment"

So, basically, if you reboot or unmount your filesystems for any reason, 
you have to set your chroot up again.

Do the commands from these sections of the book after reboot:

1. 6.2 Mounting Virtual Kernel File Systems
2. 6.3 Entering the Chroot Environment
3. 6.8 Populating /dev
