I am in chapter 6 of lfs-3.0 and got following error message while trying to do "make check" with e2fsprogs-1.24:

make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/e/e2fsprogs-1.24/lib/ext2fs'
../../util/subst -f ../../util/subst.conf ./
make[1]: ../et/compile_et: Command not found
make[1]: *** [ext2_err.h] Error 127
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/e/e2fsprogs-1.24/lib/ext2fs'
make: *** [check-recursive] Error 1


I know in lfs they do not recommend to do "make check" but I did if for learning purpose and it is showing an error.

Should I ignore it or does it mean I have found a bug? Thanks for any reply/comments in anticipation...
