LFS 5.0 is an old version of LFS, and the specified version of binutils
for LFS 5.0 was 2.14 - you seem to have binutils-184.108.40.206.8, which
would be a HJ Lu release of the binutils CVS tree - so yes, this
particular version does require you to install m4, bison, and flex as
part of the chapter 5 build. If you used the version specified in the
5.0 book, you would not need them.
This type of question could have been answered by the FAQ, had you taken
the time to check there first.
