A couple of errors found:

Chapter 6. Cross Compiling Temporary Tools
6.7. File-5.39

Building gives the error:

Cannot use the installed version of file (5.37) to
cross-compile file 5.39
Please install file 5.39 locally first

..fixed by updating file on the host.

Chapter 6. Cross Compiling Temporary Tools
6.10. Grep-3.4

Building pulls in a dep on libpcre from the host, which causes problems later, but can be fixed with "--disable-perl-regexp"

Also, but probably out of scope,

Chapter 5. Compiling a Cross-Toolchain
5.5. Glibc-2.31

Fails for arm (RPi) with a long double error fixed with an upstream patch:
