There is no point in running the sanity check if the commands are failing!
You need to figure out why the commands are failing.

Please cut and paste the below, press enter, then show us the output (and error
if any) - be careful of wordwrap:

SPECFILE=/tools/lib/gcc-lib/*/*/specs &&
sed -e 's@ /lib/ /tools/lib/ at g' $SPECFILE > tempspecfile &&
mv -f tempspecfile $SPECFILE &&

If no error, then please physically "eyeball" the specs file and see if the
intended change was made. This is all explained in the book. I fail to see
why this is a problem for you.
