You need a patch to gcc and a patch to fileutils and of course the reisefs 

the gcc patch can be found at

the fileutils patch is in the archive of the lfs-discuss list. Here's a link 
to the online version of the email containing the patch (and a few other 
patches you may want to use, like the glibc-2.2-ldconfig patch):

btw, i think you meant to type gcc-2.95.2, not gcc-2.95.1, right?
