Yep, sure did!  I had Glibc 2.2.1 installed, so I simply used the
instructions from the 'LFS-3.0pre3' upgrade hint, so now I'm not sure if I
was running pre1 or pre3.

Both the static libs for Glibc and ncurses were broken on my box - I don't
know if it was due to something I did, or the pre1 book had the dodgy
stripping instructions as well?

Anyhow, that fixed the problem, static Bash compiles perfectly and I am
one happy camper! :D

Cheers, and thanks heaps (again) for the effort Gerard.
