    I looked at the page of the LFS manual on compiling GCC, and I don't see anything about patches.

    You have to give us more information. *Exactly* which part of the LFS instructions are you stuck on? Have you deviated from the instructions up to this point?

    Note that you might need to patch it either in the beginning or at the end: From page 46 of the PDF version of manual 6.2:

    Quote Originally Posted by LFS Manual
    Several of the packages are patched before compilation, but only when the patch is needed to circumvent a
    problem. A patch is often needed in both this and the next chapter, but sometimes in only one or the other.
    Therefore, do not be concerned if instructions for a downloaded patch seem to be missing. Warning messages
    about offset or fuzz may also be encountered when applying a patch. Do not worry about these warnings, as the
    patch was still successfully applied.
