When I try to build binutils, I get the following error

make[1]: *** [configure-bfd] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/mnt/lfs/sources/binutils-build' 
make: *** [all] Error 2

Here is the full verbose of the build:

Any idea on how to solve this issue ?

    Didn't you delete the binutils-build after pass 1? You should always delete the work directories after finishing and use clean ones, especially with such sensitive packages that have several passes. Try to be more careful when you read the instructions. Chapter 5.3

As per the verbose build output the source directory is already configured and needs cleaning before binutils will build. You should run make distclean then re-attempt the build.
