It's that, or a missing egrep (the lines ending with \c indicate that a
grep program is not present or not statically linked (other problems can
also cause it, but since egrep is also the leading cause in GNU CC
detection problems, it stands to reason that 'grep' wasn't installed
properly in chapter 5)).

This, by the way, is in the LFS FAQ as well. Next time, please read it. The
GNU CC entry is at:
