I have a comment on it, you can scrap the Debian problem. I've investigated 
it in great detail today and the problem with install-info is not as 'severe' 
as thought.

The error is as follows:
install-info: unknown option `--dir=/mnt/lfs/usr/info/dir'
Error 2 (ignored)

'make install' does not fail due to this error. You don't have properly 
installed info pages at this moment, but when you reinstall bash later in 
chap6 that's fixed. The important matter is that 'make install' copies the 
bash binary to $LFS/usr/bin just fine.
