5.15 compiling bash: configure script hangs at "checking where .elc files should go"


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.

Code:
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.

Usually no problem : Emacs is not a requirement ..
http://lfs.linux-mirror.org/lfs/view.../hostreqs.html

' ./configure --help ' : No options for emacs.
You can try : --disable-emacs --disable-xemacs
.. or just uninstall your emacs ( and xemacs ).

Then configure will reply ..
checking for emacs... no
checking for xemacs... no

.. And that is OK.

I'm running from a LiveCD, so emacs uninstallation is a hassle. I tried --disable-emacs, --disable-xemacs, and --disable-qemacs (my LiveCD has qemacs), but none were recognized.

Is there a way to effectively remove emacs from my current boot session, but of course without changing the CD contents?

EDIT: Ah. Removed the symlink /usr/bin/emacs -> /usr/bin/qemacs and all was well. Many thanks!
