I just finished with a CLFS basic system but I had a rocky start with 
things like this and I used Ubuntu-9.04 as a host system.  Except for a 
couple of typos all my problems stemmed from the fact that I didn't have 
all the compiler, linker and support files.  Make sure you have added 
the "*-devel" packages.  (I'm not going to say on a public list that I 
didn't have g++ installed and didn't know it. :) )
