Ok, the lfs-bootscripts [2.0.0] remove the contents of /tmp on bootup.

which means, the /tmp/.ICE-unix file get's deleted.

We have a file called /etc/sysconfig/createfiles [processed by
/etc/rc.d/init.d/cleanfs], with additional information in the README file.

I suggest you add
cat > /etc/sysconfig/createfiles << "EOF"
dir root root 1777 /tmp/.ICE-unix

which will create the file with the proper permissions.  (This wont work
in the 1.12 bootscripts).
