CVS 20030603 and BLFS shadow-4.0.3

Hi all,

I must be doing something incredible stupid here, but for the life of me
I cannot figure it out.

I rebuilt my system based on LFS CVS 20030603, with a few updated
packages.  All went well
until I hit BLFS shadow 4.0.3 rebuild when I had the following:

make[2]: Nothing to be done for `install-data-am'.
make[2]: Leaving directory `/build/shadow-4.0.3'
make[1]: Leaving directory `/build/shadow-4.0.3'
mv: cannot stat `/lib/': No such file or directory
mv: cannot stat `/lib/': No such file or directory

it seems to have created /lib/libmisc.0.0.0 and /lib/libshadow.0.0.0
instead of .so libraries.  OK, I thought,
scrapped the install and rebuilt with the specified automake and gettext
versions.  Another week gone.

BUT I still get the same problem.  Anyone else.  I have searched and
googled and RTFFAQ and etc to no avail.

Help, I have lost a week, and I'm back to where I have started.

# bzcat /packages/shadow-4.0.3.patch.bz2 | patch -Np1 &&
autoconf &&
LDFLAGS="-lpam -lpam_misc"
./configure --prefix=/usr --enable-shared --with-libpam &&
make && installwatch -o /var/install/${PWD##*/} make install && rm
/bin/vipw &&
rm /bin/sg && mv /lib/{libmisc.*a,libshadow.*a} /usr/lib &&
mv /lib/{,} /usr/lib &&
ln -sf ../../lib/ /usr/lib/ &&
ln -sf ../../lib/ /usr/lib/ && cp debian/securetty

The middle of the logfile:

rm -fr .libs/ .libs/libmisc.* .libs/libmisc.*

(cd .libs && rm -f libmisc.0 && ln -s libmisc.0.0.0 libmisc.0)
(cd .libs && rm -f libmisc && ln -s libmisc.0.0.0 libmisc)

HELP, please.
