Just wanted to drop a line about a problem i had.

Running the latest Debian, with just the Desktop Environment option installed.

Was getting an error during Step 5.3 of the LFS book, trying to run
the configure script for binutils.

I'm sorry I don't have the exact error text, but it was along the
lines of "Unable to compile executable"

Anyway, I think it was GCC was not (properly) installed.

Fixed the problem by using apt-get to install package "build-essential"

After that, I can move on.
