First, you probably should be doing LFS 5.0, not 5.1, which doesn't
exist, nor 5.1-pre, which is unstable :(

Second, it'd be great if you could show us exactly what you are doing:
which version of mc, which compilation steps, and especially, what
*exact* errors you're getting. See the faq on how to most efficiently
report errors.
