texinfo / undefined reference to `tgetflag'


installing LFS from the arch distribution and have almost finished chapter 5. Unfortunately I hit a brick wall with texinfo. configure showed now errors but make returned the following just before it stopped.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
/home/lfs/texinfo/texinfo-4.2/info/terminal.c:635: undefined reference to `tgetflag'
terminal.o(.text+0xd0c):/home/lfs/texinfo/texinfo-4.2/info/terminal.c:608: undefined reference to `tgetstr'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[1]: *** [ginfo] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/lfs/texinfo/texinfo-4.2/info'
make: *** [install-recursive] Error 1
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

The output has numerous "undefined reference to `tgetstr'" messages.

I'm pretty much a newbie on this type of situation so I'm open to any suggestions.

Regards,

In the LFS 4.1 book Texinfo-4.3 is used. Possibly if you get that package instead of 4.2 that may solve the problem. Maybe.

I am also having this problem, and this happens with 4.1 as well. Apparently it has something to do with ncurses not being installed. However, I have tried installing ncurses from source and just the standard shot-in-the-dark
Code:
sudo apt-get install ncurses*
None of this has worked for me. I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 as the host system.

Hi,

this is a 7 year old thread.
Ubuntu is not a suitable host for lfs. Use the liveCD instead.
Which version of LFS are you trying to install?

Well, I figured it out. I'm using lfs 6.7. I actually just finished my temp toolchain. Other than that little hiccup, things went pretty smoothly.
