No, CVS bugs are very welcome and needed. Else it'll never leave CVS :)
Frank Langtind also had a problem with gettext. From the output Frank gave me
he did cd src && make. Also --prefix=$LFS/usr was used, which isn't needed
here since we don't do a full install.
Hmm. i just did a regular ./configure && make LDFLAGS=-static and it worked
fine. The reason it failed on me before was that I ran from a Glibc-2.1.3
system, from Glibc-2.2.1 it doesn't cause problems.
I'll have to get back in my old LFS system and refine these installation
instructions. I'll get back to you guys with proper gettext instructions.
