Did you mean to post this to lfs-dev? I think that part of the CVS book 
profile is in a state of transition; you'll note that util-linux was 
removed from ch5 (still under debate), and as such all mounting of 
filesystems has to be done before ch6 starts (can't be done inside the 
chroot until after util-linux has been built).

I suspect what you are seeing will be fixed shortly, but the editors 
should be made aware of it.
