Compiling bash: mksyntax or errno.h?

When I compile bash (from LFS 3.0) with my Suse Linux I get:
gcc  -DPROGRAM='"bash"' -DCONF_HOSTTYPE='"i686"' -DCONF_OSTYPE='"linux-gnu"' -DCONF_MACHTYPE='"i686-pc-linux-gnu"' -DCONF_VENDOR='"pc"' -DSHELL -DHAVE_CONFIG_H  -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64  -I.  -I. -I./include -I./lib -I/lfs/usr/include -g -O2 -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64  -o mksyntax ./mksyntax.c
In file included from /usr/include/errno.h:36,
                 from ./mksyntax.c:27:
/usr/include/bits/errno.h:25: linux/errno.h: No such file or directory
make: *** [mksyntax] Error 1

Unfortunately I have not enough knowledge to make sense
of this error message. So what can I do?
I have all software that is listed in the section
"Needed for bash" on my sources system installed.
