 You are using the 7.1 book.  In front of configure the text is
_arranged_ as four lines [ everything from the beginning to the end
is one command line, because of the backslashes ], starting with
LKID_CFLAGS="-I/usr/include/blkid"  \
BLKID_LIBS="-L/lib -lblkid"          \

 Make sure that you include all of the command, and ensure each
backslash is the last character on its line.
