I'm new to LFS 5.1.
A problem during installing gettext.

After run  ./configure
i just  run "make && make install "
I got the following problem.

Making all in autoconf-lib-link
make[1]: Entering directory
cd . && /bin/sh /mnt/lfs/sources/gettext-0.14.1/config/missing --run
aclocal-1.8 -I m4 -I ../config/m4
/mnt/lfs/sources/gettext-0.14.1/config/missing: line 46: aclocal-1.8:
command not found

         it often tells you about the needed prerequirements for installing

         some other package would contain this missing `aclocal-1.8'

Does LFS need this package?
