CVS Chapter 6 bash Problem

The instructions in chapter 6 of the CVS book for bash seem to have a 
couple of problems.  I used the shell scripts for -pre4 downloaded from 
the server.  Also, using gcc 3.0 and glibc 2.2.3, no problems with them 
yet that I can see.

For reference:

	./configure --prefix=/usr --with-curses &&
	make &&
	make install &&
	mv $LFS/usr/bin/bash $LFS/usr/bin/bashbug $LFS/bin
1.  "logout" fails with the message that you must use "exit" as it's not 
a login shell.
2.  The move succeceeded despite the logout fail.  Obviously not a 
problem but it just seems strange to not be done immediately after the 
"make install".  At least to me it seems like exiting the shell should be 
the last thing done.

My suggested correction:

	./configure --prefix=/usr --with-curses &&
	make &&
	make install &&
	mv /usr/bin/bash /usr/bin/bashbug /bin &&

Saves a little typing as well for those not using the scripts.
