The post i am refering to is this one:

hope this jogs your memory ;)

My symptoms are exactly the same as yours btw and since I did try to
follow the notes on your site, I thought maybe the problem originated
from there

But anyway, I will try re-installing the LFS again, perhaps I missed a
step earlier in chapter 5, but ncurses went fine, so maybe it is some
weird leakage problem.

thanks again,

In all honesty ben, I don't remember running across this problem at
all.  I tried looking through my old messages in the archives, and I
can't find any referance to bash.  I do remember having a problem with
ncurses once, but that was on x86 and was fixed almost a year ago.
