That's it? When I was compiling I got the impression there were a lot
more errors. I guess a lot of errors were from one and the same
offending variable.

Well if it's as simple as this I'll remove bash-2.03 from LFS-2.3.5 and
make this patch file available. 

So far for a "book freeze". This is important enough to unfreeze it make
some last minute changes. Thanks.
