By this do you mean that you put all the commands in a script or that
you logged all the commands to one file?

If you're scripting, you have to be very careful.  You need to know
that the script will continue unless you have some sort of error
handling scheme.  If you don't a crucial step might not have worked.
This could lead to a bizarre error later like the one you're

If you're rebooting the machine, you must make sure that you remount
/dev and enter the chroot correctly.  This is another step that can
cause bizarre errors.  Read the note at the bottom of this page:

Not yet.  It would be beneficial for you to search through the log for
"Error" or "ERROR" or some variant.  Make sure that your problem
didn't actually start much earlier.

I've never built from Debian, but they put together solid systems.
I'd be surprised if Debian was the cause of your problems.  If you're
desperate, you can try to run the build from the LFS LiveCD.  This is
a known good host that people around here have used with good success.
