I am not one of the pros here but from what I see you are using Ubuntu as your 
host system. I compiled my LFS-7.2 using Ubuntu as my host system as well. But I 
had to install some packages that were missing from Ubuntu before I began my 
build. If you didn't run the version-check script in vii-Host System 
Requirements, you need to do so and then install any missing packages.
