Thanks for that info.  I patched ncurses.  I downloaded a package called byacc; to use as YACC=yacc; but your solution is better.

Standard LFS 3.2 build plus gawk. In chapter 6 I needed to build m4 and autoconf before gcc rebuild.

I have got X, libmng, libpng, jpeg, pcre, lesstiff, imlib, Eterm and emacs so far.  Supprised that the kernel built.  ungif failed.

Will be going for bind, qmail, and lynx.   If that works I will be using it for real.

One important thing.  I used separate / and /usr partition so libgcc.so ended up in /usr/lib.  /sbin/fsck depends in libgcc.so; and /usr is not mounted when it is needed.  Is there any magic flag to get gcc to put its libraries into /lib?
