That's not normal.

That hints towards your /etc/inittab file not being correct. I suggest 
removing /etc/inittab from LFS and re-creating it. The correct file is in 
chapter 6-Sysvinit.

It might be a case that the agetty in inittab aren't correct either causing 
login problem. Recreating /etc/inittab properly may take care of both these
