There are quite a few things that you have not mentioned.  The instructions for 
the entire book have been checked with an automated procedure, so the 
instructions are correct for the book's assumptions.

First, are there any exceptions you may have to the prereqs that are specified 
in section iv. Host System Requirements?

Second what is your host system?

Third, are you compiling ncurses from chapter 5 or chapter 6?

In virtually every case, problems like yours are due to an accidental odeviation 
from the book's earlier instructions or trying to do things in an unsupported 

If this is your first LFS system, follow the instructions exactly.  After you 
learn more, then deviate as you see fit.
