Xorg compile trouble

Hello guys,

This is my first post here.

I just installed my first LFS on an Athlon-XP last Thursday.
Then the next day, I upgraded to and udev following the 
2.6-udev.txt from the hints page 
(www.linuxfromscratch.org/hints/downloads/files/2.6-udev.txt) .
The upgrade went fine.

Then I downloaded BLFS-BOOK-5.1 and installed several apps, like links. Then I 
went ahead and prepared to install X on my box. I installed freetype, libpng, 
fontconfig as preparations. I downloaded the 7 src of X11R6.7.0 and checked 
their md5sums, which are all OKs. I followed the manual in creating shadow 
directory in my xcbuild using lndir. Then I created the config/cf/host.def in 
my xcbuild directory as per manual instructions. 

My problem was with the building step.
When I issue the command
# (make World 2>&1 | tee xorg-compile.log && exit $PIPESTATUS )

I got error messages. Here's the xorg-compile.log

Building Release 6.7.

I hope you checked the configuration parameters in ./config/cf
to see if you need to pass BOOTSTRAPCFLAGS.

In this log, I don't understand this:
I hope you checked the configuration parameters in ./config/cf
to see if you need to pass BOOTSTRAPCFLAGS.

because there was nothing in the manual that would tell me how to do this.
