It would help if you would let us know:
1) What LFS/BLFS version you are attempting to build against?
2) What errors have you received during the build of directFB?
3) Did you have any problems installing the dependencies required for 
4) Is Frame Buffer support in your kernel?

I am not a BLFS developer, but I have found that giving everyone on the 
list more information may just get you the answers you need to build
