Tim and Allen,

I'm afraid I've inadvertently misled both of you concerning the plus sign 
business. Actually, I had intended to place an = there when preparing this 
message but had depressed the shift key when making the entry and got + 
instead. Sincerest apologies. Knowing now that the command actually appeared 

./configure --enable-static-link \
     --prefix=$LFS/static --with-curses &&
make &&
make install

when I entered it and got the error, would that alter your evaluation in any
