They are identical to the version on GNU. I just downloaded the version
from the GNU site and compared with what's on -

Perhaps you re-ran ./configure after the first time failed? I saw a line
saying "config.h unchanged" which means it already existed and wasn't
updated. This usually happens when ./configure was already ran. Now, when
you downloaded the GNU version you extracted a fresh copy. If you had
extracted the version from the LFS ftp site it would most likely have had
the same effect.
