If you look in the second pass of building the toolchain, you'll see that 
binutils and gcc are built using these explicit names in a further effort to 
insulate the build process from the host. These are the 
cross-compiling/linking tools.

However, if you are really seeing "/mnt/lfs/tools/i686-linux-gnu", then you 
have an error; it should be ""/mnt/lfs/tools/i686-lfs-linux-gnu". Methinks 
you may have mistyped it, though.
