Error making texinfo-4.0


The installation of LFS 3.2 has been plain sailing until this point. In chapter 6, on the make command of textinto-4.0 I receive an error:

terminal.c:33: ncurses/termcap.h: No such file or directory
make[2]: *** [terminal.o] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/texinfo-4.0/info'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/texinfo-4.0'
make: *** [all-recursive-am] Error 2

the termcap.h file is located in /usr/include/termcap.h but I'm not sure how to get make to look there instead.

I see on the installation of ncurses that termcap fallback support is turned off. Would turning this on make a difference?

Oh yeah, I am using the 3.2 packages, finally was given them!

Right - after reading the search pages from the LFS website it appears that I have made a minor mistake in not deleting all previous folders from chp5 and starting a fresh from chp6.

I will try chp6 again.

Yep that was the solution.
