I am using the LFS book 5.0 on an AMD (i686-pc-linux-gnu) system.  The
dynamic loader is linux.so.2.  I have compiled all of the source to
this point without any errors, except the known errors the book says
is OK.  I am in chapter 6, page 151.  When compiling autoconf-2.57 I
get the following:
make[3]: Entering directory `/sources/autoconf-2.57/lib'

Does anyone know how to fix this?  What steps do I need to take to
troubleshoot an error as this?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
