Hi all,

I'm running into a wierd problem with building fileutils statically in 
chapter 5.

I am running off the CVS LFS, but the commands hasn't changed from other 

After running 'configure' and 'make LDFLAGS=-static', when I run the 'make 
install' command, it rebuilds the binaries and they are no longer statically 

I solved this by running 'make LDFLAGS=-static install' but I was wondering 
if there was any insight into why this would happen.
