The bash you create in chapter 5 must be statically linked and thus you have 
to pass --enable-static-link

To check whether bash ended up statically or not can be verify by running: 
ldd $LFS/bin/bash after you installed it. It should say that it's statically 
linked or "not a dynamic executable" which means the same.
