Apart from all the good comments from everyone, I think I need to
stress this point, and to note that understanding *how* LFS fits
together is easiest if you have a spare x86_64 partition where you
can install it - that approach is common and comparatively
well-tested, i686 should work but is nowadays only rarely tested.
Everything else will have differences.

But on the aarch64 machine you (Alan) need to get a working toolchain
on your host before you can get anywhere.

If that machine is some sort of Raspberry Pi, perhaps
http://intestinate.com/pilfs/ might have something useful on changes
to the process (seems to have last been updated in March, and refers
to a 4.14 kernel).
