I know I don't talk much here usually, but personally I don't feel that ALFS
being broken on end-user distros like Ubuntu is likely to be due to a
problem on ALFS' end.
Ubuntu is obscene in terms of default omissions when compared to a base LFS,
even after the build-essential metapackage is installed. Personally I avoid
anything Debian based like the plague; technically speaking it's horrible,
and the people are even worse.
If you need a sane build host, I'd either manually build LFS first, or use
Slackware. That's about the only premade distro that I know of that can be
relied upon for a genuinely sane build environment out of the box.
