LFS 6 Chapter 6.3 chroot error


Hello!
Please help me! I am trying to build the latest linux from scratch. everything has worked great up to chapter 6.3, where i enter the command:

chroot "$LFS" /tools/bin/env -i \
HOME=/root TERM="$TERM" PS1='\u:\w\$ ' \
PATH=/bin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/usr/sbin:/tools/bin \
/tools/bin/bash --login +h

it outputs:

/tools/bin/bash: error while loading shared libraries: libtermcap.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

i am afraid if i continue on, ignoring this error could lead to more problems. But i am not sure what to do yet so any advice clues or anything would be very much appreciated

thanks,
mike

p.s.
i am running:
LFS SVN-20050417 (recent version, hopefully this isn't related to the problem)
Slackware 10.1
with stock kernel 2.6 from disc 2 /testing

to know if bash is correctly linked, try: ldd /tools/bin/bash
for example, here is my bash:
Code:
ldd /bin/bash
        libncurses.so.5 => /usr/lib/libncurses.so.5 (0x4001f000)
        libdl.so.2 => /lib/libdl.so.2 (0x40065000)
        libc.so.6 => /lib/libc.so.6 (0x40068000)
        /lib/ld-linux.so.2 => /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0x40000000)

Well in your chapter 5 try to recompile Bash with the following options:
Code:
./configure --enable-static-link --prefix=/tools --with-curses --without-bash-malloc

After performing the (re)'configure', did you perform the 'make' and 'make install'?

As Oliv' recommended, run this command to verify your bash executable is built correctly:
Code:
ldd /tools/bin/bash
