Okay, I see the problem - the cd into gettext-tools was not for a single
step but for the whole set of steps.  I kept looking in the top level
directory for src and lib and they weren't there.  It's fixed now.

BTW, stable LFS has gettext in the temporary tools section using just
make and make install.  DevLFS uses the -C lib and -C src options
instead.  I had checked LFS, but had only looked at the stable version.

Thanks (and to Jim too).
