so i was able to get around the errors (as the appeared) by issuing the following command before running the make again:
cp libiberty.a /sources/lfs-sources/binutils-build/libiberty
you will also have the same issue with:
again just copy those files to the appropriate build directory:
libbfd.la --> binutils-build/bfd
libopcodes.la --> binutils-build/opcodes
However... the check failed... thus so did the install...
