I need some help.
I'm following lfs-book 4.0 to buil a system under Mandrake 8.1
This is my first attempt with lfs.

Everything was okay for chapter 5, exept texinfo compilation.
I can't compile ginfo. Other target in /texinfo-4.2/info are ok
(makeinfo,...), but for ginfo I get a linkage error I don't understand :

gcc  -g -O2  -static -o ginfo  dir.o display.o dribble.o echo-area.o
filesys.o footnotes.o gc.o indices.o info-utils.o info.o infodoc.o
infomap.o m-x.o man.o nodemenu.o nodes.o search.o session.o signals.o
terminal.o tilde.o variables.o window.o  doc.o key.o ../lib/libtxi.a 
/usr/bin/ld: Warning: size of symbol `ospeed' changed from 2 to 4 in
lib_tputs.ocollect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[3]: *** [ginfo] Erreur 1
make[3]: Quitte le répertoire `/mnt/lfs/static/texinfo-4.2/info'
make[2]: *** [all] Erreur 2
make[2]: Quitte le répertoire `/mnt/lfs/static/texinfo-4.2/info'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Erreur 1
make[1]: Quitte le répertoire `/mnt/lfs/static/texinfo-4.2'
make: *** [all] Erreur 2

I'm sure it's a stupid question, but I don't know where to search :
included files ? gcc version ?...
I didn't find anything in the mailing list archive, so please HELP !!!

Thanx in advance 


P.S. : (sorry about speaking froggy's English !)
