no... I even think that you can go to the next step ;)
'cause all udev exec have been installed, symbolic links done and that's when it try to kill an hypothetic old udev daemon (probably to restart the new one) that it fails. So I think that's OK for the next step ;)

I got the same error, however, i can't even do the following command as described in the book.

cp ../udev-config-3.rules /etc/udev/rules.d/25-lfs.rules
theres no such file in the directory below my source directory..
any clues?

I'm building from the LFS 6.1 Live CD, so it was already included with the other sources and patches. The URL for the rules file is listed just after the URL for the udev source tarball in section 3.2.

Section 3.2:

The LFS 6.1 udev config rules file:
