i have tried searching the archives, yes. i was unable to find the solution. if the solution is in the archives, i apologize for wasting more of your time.
however, except for one person (Thu Jan 04 2001 - 00:02:28 EST) who never got a response, all the other problems with sh-utils that i found were for different error 
messages. they were were given the solution of doing a dynamic link, rather than a static one. i tried that as well, and got the same error messages as before.
as well, i notice that all the other messages were using the command, "make  -e LDFLAGS=-static". the 2.4.4 book does not use the -e flag. is this intentional?
