I am trying to build LFS from version 5.1.1 book
Using Suse 9.1 environment.
And ..I 'm a newbie 

I reached now my trial number 7 up to Chapter 6.
Until there, I solved myself interesting issues as 
Seeming corrupted Glibc file in one mirror server
Rights to access some files sometime

But now I' ve gone through what I found on Wiki 
Whithout finding appropriate answer.

Installing basic system software / Binutils-2.14
I got some test results:

My question is 
How is it right or wrong ?
I mean does those results may compromise 
following installation steps

Details below

first problem seems to come from previous part here under
make  check-DEJAGNU

second problem seems to come from 

make[3]: Nothing to be done for `check-am'.

third problem may come from here under part of :

make  all-recursive
make[2]: Entering directory `/binutils-build/gprof'
Making all in po
make[3]: Entering directory `/binutils-build/gprof/po'
make[3]: Nothing to be done for `all'.

Thanks a lot
