patch-2.5.4 compiling problems (chapter 5)

I experienced following problem when compiling patch-2.5.4:

LFS 3.2 page 48:

after executing following command:
make LDFLAGS=-static

following message appears:
gcc -c -D_GNU_SOURCES -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -Ded_PROGRAM\"/bin/ed\" -I. -I. -g -02
util.c: In function 'set_signals':
util.c:730: incompatible types in assignment
make: *** [util.o] Fehler 1

What does this mean?
The patch-program is not installed.
I don´t have '/bin/ed' - is this the reason?

Please give me some hints!!
