I assume the configure script shows that error?

It's probably because the configure script needs to run a program that doesn't 
exist or doesn't work. Maybe you missed a package in chapter 5 (fileutils 
maybe, or sh-utils) or maybe a package didn't install entirely properly.

First of all, whenever you get an error we need more output. That one line 
doesn't mean much because it doesn't tell us _when_ the error occurs. If we 
see more lines we'll see what the configure script was doing before it 
stopped with that error.
