this issue is due a bug in glibc in the current LFS 6.1 instructions,
either you can patch glibc when you rebuild lfs, or you can edit the
sshd_conf file in /etc/ssh/, changing the line reading
"#UsePrivilegeSeparation yes" to "UsePrivilegeSeparation no". (without
quotes) and restart sshd.
LFS ID #12355
