'-v' unrecognized with some commands when using 13.37 for linux from scratch 7.1

I'm using slackware 13.37 for lfs 7.1 n' wanted to ask why the print in next line (-v) option is not recognized as per the 7.1 reference for chmod, mount and mkdir.

No idea what you are smoking, but on my Slackware64 13.37 all these three commands support the "-v" option.
It's "v" for "verbose". I am not sure what you meant with "print in next line".

Also note that Linux From Scratch != Slackware.

Apologies if i was unclear;

mkdir -v, chmod -v , etc were not complying but will switch to the LFS forum and ask.

Those commands all work perfectly well with -v in standard Slackware. I'm wondering if you have some bad aliases defined [1]. 'alias' will list them, 'unalias -a' will get rid of them all. Or maybe you're doing something 'clever' like replacing bash with busybox?

[1] Aliases are baaad, m'kay

The OP has been asked again in the LFS forum, here.
