[lfs-support] Dual architecture-triplet binutils directories in temp /tools

First, thank you all who have created LFS and graciously offer to
support users who take on the project.
After getting to the end of chapter 5 of the LFS 8.2 book, I noticed
that my /tools directory has both the host and the new
And, more disturbingly, it seems that gcc prefers the linker from the
host architecture directory:
$ type gcc
gcc is /tools/bin/gcc
$ gcc -print-prog-name=ld
This seem wrong. I did notice the dual directories early, but figured
it was an artifact of the initial pass and would be adjusted in later
steps. Maybe it's not wrong; the remaining work is still being
performed on the build system, which would mean that the above linker
location is correct? Sorry, this is a bit confusing to me; I'm fairly
new to the practice of cross-compiling.
1. Is this incorrect?
2. What might I have done incorrectly to cause it?
3. Any shortcut to correcting it?
Thanks and kind regards,
