Yeah, this is it ;o)
So I gonna re-built my static environment from the begining !

But does someone can explain to me the gain of these backslash ?
What is the difference between :
"./configure --enable-static-link \
     --prefix=$LFS/static --with-curses &&
     ...
"

and 

"./configure --enable-static-link  --prefix=$LFS/static --with-curses && ..."

???


Thanks to all
Benoit
