I abandoned that project, and started with a fresh LFS.
Now I am at Binutils-2.22 - Pass 1 , that is at chapter 5.4.1
After creating the directory binutils-build, ans issueing the command
--target=$LFS_TGT --prefix=/tools \
I get the following error
lfs@debian:/mnt/lfs/sources/binutils-build$ ../binutils-2.22/configure \
> --target=$LFS_TGT --prefix=/tool \

1) Why is this? I didn't met with such an error in my previous attempt.
2) Also, when running commands that extend to multiple lines with \ at the end, what am I supposed to do ? That is, whether, I should press enter key and continue with the next line, ar put no space between (\) and the enxt character ?
