Dear all,

I am stuck in building binutils-2.14 using book 5. I have tried unzipping the 
package again and rebuilding from scratch and recompiling, but it always ends 
the same when I make check...

I had a complaint about the kernel not supporting pty during MAKEDEV, but 
apart from that, things have been going well. I cannot find an answer on the 
web and I am getting a little worried. 
I have tried asking for support on the IRC site, but have had no replies.

Is there an obvious mistake I have made?
