I noticed now that the vt switching is working before startx. Once in
vt5, with the default wm, I can't switch back untill I kill X. If the
xterm is selected, pressing Ctl-Alt-F1 writes 'P' in the xterm,
Ctl-Alt-F2 writes 'Q', etc.

My xorg.conf file is identical to the one I have working in Gentoo. The
only difference I can think of is the (nvidia) driver: 1.0-9746 in LFS
(the one with the problem) and 1.0.8776 in Gentoo. Could this be it?
