Glibc make error

I'm having some issues with installing glibc while following the instructions on chapter 5.7.

>From what I understand from the instructions, I made the file:

In the configparms file, I should have the following text:
case `uname -m` in
  i?86) echo "CFLAGS += -march=i486 -mtune=native" > configparms ;;

There didn't seem to be anything that went wrong with the configure script, but when I typed the "make" command this is what I got:
make -r PARALLELMFLAGS="" CVSOPTS="" -C ../glibc-2.11.1 objdir=`pwd` all
make[1]: Entering directory `/mnt/lfs/sources/glibc-2.11.1'
/mnt/lfs/sources/glibc-build/configparms:1: *** missing separator.  Stop.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/mnt/lfs/sources/glibc-2.11.1'
make: *** [all] Error 2

Have I understood the instructions correctly? Thanks for your help!
