Sorry, but I am having trouble getting started.
I am running LFS 3.3 as host to build LFS 4.0 on another partition.
I have:
su-ed to user lfs
run the setup script
unpacked bash source
changed dir to $LFS/usr/src/bash-2.05a
tried to run the bash compile script and got:

su-2.05a$ cd bash-2.05a
su-2.05a$ ./configure --enable-static-link \
>     --prefix=$LFS/static --with-curses &&
> make &&
> make install
checking build system type... configure: error: cannot guess build 
type; you must specify one
