I have recurrently written about this, here.

My error with this page, even after having built one or two versions of 
LFS, was that the last line:

"gcc compilation OK"

that made me ignore the other lines, when some of these lines were
telling me that I had requirements to fix.

I thought: "all right, host can compile, so the other lines are just 
additional information or recommendations, may be".

My suggestion in a previous post was to move that line to an earlier 
place in the script.

Chris gave better suggestions than mine. But as the SVN version has 
been modified, Bruce does not think that anything is necessary, "I have 
modified the book, let us wait until new release on March". Having read 
that before my original post, I told him that we could at least create 
a ticket to remember about that on March, but he still thinks it to be 
unnecessary. Perhaps he is right, if the complaints to come from the
stable, not the SVN, and the issues will continue to appear in this list
so as to keep us aware of the problem. However, if the new version does
not work as expected there will be six more months until the eventual
needed fix be introduced, and go into the following release.

[]s,
Fernando
