I'm making LFS from the SystemRescueCd 1.4.0, a LiveCD. Things have been going well except I'm now trying to compile bash-4.1 using the temporary toolchain. For reference: http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/lfs/...er05/bash.html
I'm compiling this as the nonsuperuser 'lfs' as specified, and I've got the standard symlink from /tools to /mnt/lfs/tools.
lfs@sysresccd /mnt/lfs/sources/bash-4.1 $ ./configure --prefix=/tools --without-bash-malloc
checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking for emacs... emacs
checking where .elc files should go...
The script hangs here with no further response. I've tried unpacking the source again a couple times, with no change in behavior. I tried looking at the configure script source, but my bash-fu is not strong enough.
Your help's much appreciated.
