Thanks Elly,

This worked:

sudo apt-get install gawk
sudo update-alternatives --set awk /usr/bin/gawk

Then I started from scratch and all is well.

Unless you're in runlevel 3 or using a server edition of Ubuntu, the power symbol on the top toolbar is probably red, which means that the system wants to restart. (The gui is still good for some things. Like the browser.)



I am on server and did a reboot but no difference :

Did you also try deleting the untarred files and the build folder and redoing the build from scratch? It might still be trying to find mawk.

If that fails as well, try rebuilding the entire LFS system, as the tools might be directing to mawk as well. If even that fails, make sure Ubuntu is using gawk as the default awk, and that all programs are using gawk as well. Though, at last check, I didn't think the server edition came with mawk at all...
