Sorry for the top post.

As for the following line,
bash: command substitution: line 47:

This is what i receive when i attempt to set DL.  I'm not trying to
automate, just copying and pasting from the section 6.9 Glibc section.
Here is exactly what is entered:
root:/sources/glibc-2.14.1# DL=$(readelf -l /bin/sh | sed -n
's at .*interpret.*/tools\(.*\)]$@\1 at p')
bash: command substitution: line 53: syntax error near unexpected token `)'
bash: command substitution: line 53: `readelf -l /bin/sh | sed -n
's at .*interpret.*/tools\(.*\)]$@\1 at p')'

Also to note: the number increments by 1 every time the command is
issued, which is why it is 53 now in the example above.  (??)

However, if I take DL=$ out of the picture, i get
root:/sources/glibc-2.14.1# readelf -l /bin/sh | sed -n
's at .*interpret.*/tools\(.*\)]$@\1 at p'

So It seems I just cant set the variable DL

-best regards
