GCC command not found LFS book 6.3, section 6.7.1

I'm at the section where I'm installing the linux API headers in section 6.7.1.

I run
make mrproper
and get
root:/sources/linux- make mrproper
/sources/linux- line 11: /tools/bin/gcc: No such file or directory
/sources/linux- line 12: /tools/bin/gcc: No such file or directory
make: gcc: Command not found
  CLEAN   include/linux/version.h
I verified that gcc is in /tools/bin and it is as well as cc.

I tried to compile a dummy.c program again and it got:
bash: /tools/bin/gcc: No such file or directory
here's my path.
root:/sources/linux- echo $PATH
Am I in the wrong directory or what am I doing wrong?
Let me know if you need anymore information and any help is greatly appreciated.

I think i fixed it.

But i don't really know if i did it right or if it will cause problems later.

I realized that my program interpreter was not
/tools/lib/ and was /lib/

so I didn't really know how to fix it, so I just created a symbolic link to it with :

 ln -sv /tools/lib/ /lib/
and gcc is now found and working fine.
