Talking More Info On Binutils install Error,s

The Install went well this time around.

I get thease errors when installing any help would be greatly appreciated.I don't know if its a critical error or not. or what i should do

I,m useing man 8.2 as a host and followed the book as close as I can. going through ch#5

hope this is enough info? my install command & some of the resulting output

bash-2.05$ cd /mnt/lfs/usr/src/binutils-2.12
bash-2.05$ mkdir ../binutils-build && cd ../binutils-build && ../binutils-2.12/c
onfigure --prefix=/mnt/lfs/usr --disable-nls && make LDFLAGS=-all-static tooldir
=/mnt/lfs/usr && make toodir=/mnt/lfs/usr install


I see in my command obove a misstake in tooldir !! could that make the errors? Ill try deleating the source files and reinstalling

Your output doesn't contain the actual error message, it only says that something went wrong, not what went wrong.

Can you post more lines of the output above the lines you already sent us? See if you can spot an error message somewhere that may give you a clue about the problem.
