Everything the book (v3.0) has instructed me to do up to this point has 
worked, but when trying to install bash-2.05 after entering the command

    #  ./configure --enable-static-link --prefix=$LFS/usr \
            --bindir=$LFS/bin --with-curses &&
    >  make &&
    >  make install &&
    >  cd $LFS/bin &&
    >  ln -sf bash sh
bash started installing, but it received the error
    gcc -L./builtins -L./lib/readline -L./lib/glob -L./lib/title            -L./lib
    /malloc -L./lib/sh -static -static   -g -02 -o bash shell.o    general.o

it might not have been necessary to include all that but any help or 
suggestions would be greatly appreciated
