This is quite old. Hope you have used the book instructions for creating and
mounting the LFS partition... Also, I hope you have used the ncurses menu.
There is a CHEATSHEET in the source directory of jhalfs, which may be used to
replace the part about the settings.

Can you run /tools/bin/bash from the host (without chrooting)?
If it works, then try to copy/paste the chroot command from the book, and see
if it works.

If all works, then try "make -C /mnt/build_dir/jhalfs"

if /tools/bin/bash does not work from the host, there was something wrong when
building bash. Have a look at the logs (in /mnt/build_dir/jhalfs/logs). But if
you have not used optimization other than parallel make, this should be OK.

if /tools/bin/bash works from the host, but not when running the chroot
command, that may be a problem with the link /tools->/mnt/build_dir/tools.
Or maybe the partition was not mounted correctly.

Looks OK. I've tested building on Mint recently. It works.
