That's correct the path is set to complete all the packages in the book; 
then a reboot to bring up the new LFS system but the path still has the 
/tools/bin:/tools/sbin in it. Of course, BLFS will later correct this 
but I would have thought that LFS would have a correct path when it has 
been completed.

Which route is take chroot or boot the resulting files should be the same.
