You have a directory permissions error on your
/mnt/hdb7/build directory. This is fixed in the LFS
books. You missed a step, and it's a very simple step
too. I'm not sure where exactly it is, but it is a
chmod command. Go back through the book and look for
something that chnages permissions on your
source/build directory.
