in chroot compiled programs do not work in chroot

I just ran into a problem after installing glibc in chapter 6.9 (LFS6.6 x86_64).
All the programs, compiled so far after chrooting (really only the compiled ones) refuse to run, each printing the output
root:/# localedef
bash: /usr/bin/localedef: No such file or directory
(localedef as an example)

It is definitly there:
root:/# ls -l /usr/bin
total 2080
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root    3388 Apr 10 08:14 catchsegv
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root   74108 Apr 10 08:14 gencat
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root   46989 Apr 10 08:14 getconf

The complete amount of toolchain-programs is doing their jobs quite well (also in chroot), so I do not think I completely failed in compiling gcc in chapter 5.10, as they seem to be host independent.
In addition to this the compilation of glibc worked without any problems (except the posix/annexc test)

When used from the host-distribution they run quite well:
$ /media/LFS/usr/bin/localedef 
»localedef --help« oder »localedef --usage« gibt weitere Informationen.
I do not know how to get around this, although I am quite sure the problem is the dynamic linker.

I am looking forward to your answers!
Thanks for all replies!

did you make sure that in your chroot environment you have a symlink lib64 -> lib? Also post the output of
ldd $LFS/usr/bin/localedef
readelf -a $LFS/usr/bin/localedef | grep interpreter
You can also execute the above commands in your chroot environment but then you will have to ommit the $LFS variable.

OK, the problem was much simpler than I thought:
The dynamic linker was not in place.

The reason for this:
I am using the DESTDIR method for installing programs, and when copying the files from $FAKEROOT to / I lost all the /lib64 and /usr/lib64 files because of this:
root:/# cp -r /usr/pkglog/fakeroot/lib64 /
cp: cannot overwrite non-directory `/lib64' with directory `/usr/pkglog/fakeroot/lib64'
Thank you very much, all is working now!
