I'm not gone, just didn't had the time to pursue the topic lately.
Nevertheless I made some tests and a pattern emerged quite quickly. Please
refer to previous posts on the subject if needed since I won't copy all the

I did and surprisingly it was not revealing much. I did diffs on that file
between clean builds and the ones showing the error. I can 'provoke' a clean
build anytime when there's an error by simply doing the build manually. You
see, I'm using script files to build the system. I've been doing that since
LFS 3,3 but this time around something is fishy in a subtle way. Everytime
there's an error (with very specific packages such as findutils, gettext and
two others - the rest of the packages are building fine under the same
method) I erase the package's source tree, untar it again and issue the
command by hand. Works everytime.
Unfortunately I do not have the notes I've taken during the tests here, so I
can post them at a later time. On the other hand, maybe asking the alfs list
would be more to the point since the problem seems to reside with using
script files to install packages, in some "msyterious" way (since it works
with most of the packages).
