Have a look at the mailinglist-archive...

In short: 

Daniel Roethlisberger had the same problem. LibNSS was missing - in fact
the whole glibc was missing, because the compilation of glibc failed.

Check if you got libnss installed in your LFS system - if not check the
pages about how to install glibc again.
