You need to cd into the directory where the source tarball got extracted to
(should be bash-2.05a) - ./configure means "run the script/executable called
configure that is in the current directory".  If you do an "ls" from your
current directory ("lfs" from your output above) you'll see why you got that
error message ('configure' isn't there is it?).
