The toolchain consists of binutils, glibc, and gcc.  There is no problem
 rebuilding and installing bunutils and gcc any time you want.  glibc is
a different problem and probably needs a rebuild of LFS because of the
critical libraries that it replaces.

I've never tried it, but it would be an interesting experiment to
reinstall a new glibc using chapter 6 instructions and doing a reboot.
