All of chapter 5 (chap 4.4 up to and including 5.33) must be done as user lfs! Do not do any of those step as a different user!

If you haven't done this then I would suggest starting from scratch.

You just noticed that it does create problems.

Some of the reasons are explained here: 4.4. Setting Up the Environment

Using the CLI is the way to do it.
