I kinda got stuck here in chapter 5 while trying to install diffutils...

I've tried both approaches from the lsf-command/chapter5/diffutils scripts
and they both render the same error messages....

lfs at host:/mnt/lfs/tmp/src/d/diffutils-2.7$ ./configure --prefix=$LFS/usr &&
make LDFLAGS=-static PR_PROGRAM=/usr/bin/pr
&& make install

as i stated it makes no difference if i use the
export CPPFLAGS=-Dre_max_failures=re_max_failures2 &&
./configure --prefix=$LFS/usr &&
unset CPPFLAGS &&
make LDFLAGS=-static PR_PROGRAM=/usr/bin/pr &&
make install

oh and i'm using lfs v 3.2
the host system is a slackware 7.1 installation used for nothing else than
as a host for lfs installation =)

thx in advance for any replies
