trying to do binutils i kinda get similar results:

/tmp/ccQz4MVY.s: Assembler messages:
/tmp/ccQz4MVY.s:424: Warning: Unrecognized .section attribute: want a,w,x
/tmp/ccQz4MVY.s:424: Warning: Unrecognized .section attribute: want a,w,x
/tmp/ccQz4MVY.s:424: Error: Rest of line ignored. First ignored character is `,'.
make[1]: *** [choose-temp.o] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/sources/lfs-packages-3.2-rc1/binutils-2.11.2/libiberty'
make: *** [all-libiberty] Error 2

maybe a pattern...

the version of your binutils package doesnt match up with your compiler version. did you upgrade either one of the packages and forgot to u/g the other?

why is it that the same version of bzip2 and gcc are running on my host mandrake machine yet it wont do this on $LFS?

they are the same exact version numbers... why will it compile one day and the other it wont?

I don't have much time right now to write long postings here. I have never seen your errors before, so I'm doubting it's a problem with the packages, but rather something is really wrong with your distribution.

Perhaps at one point you installed something in chapter 5 and perhaps $LFS wasn't set but you did type it like that (instead of replacing $LFS iwth the /mnt/lfs string it's supposed to be). This could have overwritten files on your Mandrake distribution which now causes your problems.

That's just one of many, many possibilities.

All I can is that there are a lot of seasoned LFS'
ers onthe lfs-support mailinglist. Why don't you subscribe to it so we can help you there with much greater efficiency.

If you don't want to, you may want to look into reinstalling your distribution.
