>There is the catch that I may not have actually fixed it.. this LFS box isn't self-hosting yet.  Assuming this machine does boot, then I'll be satisfied.  Sadly, these steps I've described are somewhat vague.. I can of course repeat this exactly, thanks to the liveCD build environment.  Is the community interested in the the transcript of steps I took to resolve this yacc hiccup?

As long as your simlink points to gawk instead of mawk (Ubuntu defaults to mawk) and you have gawk installed ... your ok.

As soon as I fixed that, I eliminated this error.
Per the responses I got ... it seems it is a common newbie mistake to miss this requirement.

Don't worry ... I won't tell anyone that you missed it if you won't tell I missed it.
