I followed the LFS book instructions to the letter.
Shouldn't it have installed ncurses correctly?
I went back and extracted ncurses again and followed
the book instructions to the letter, and that time it
worked and util-linux compiled and installed correctly.

I am in chapter 6 now and so far have got up to mpfr with
no problems. Will continue building packages this evening.
