Binutils Check Error

I am using the LiveCD 6.1 and am at step 6.13 - Binutils- make check. After running make check, I am getting the following error message:
# of expected passes 2
# of unresolved testcases 4
make[3]: *** [check-DEJAGNU] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory `/sources/binutils-build/binutils'
make[2]: *** [check-am] Error 2
make[2]: Leaving directory `/sources/binutils-build/binutils'
make[1]: *** [check-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/sources/binutils-build/binutils'
make: *** [check-binutils] Error 2
How do I resolve this? Or, can I continue will the install?

Please advise. TIA!

I usually get such a message from binutils as I am using different versions of system libraries. But as you are using the cdrom install..I cannot seem to think that is a problem.

There are four possible problems here:
1) expect -c "spawn ls", Does that work under the new system?
2) Download the latest LFS 6.X live cd; they made a few errors recently and I believe there is a 6.3, which I could easily be mistaken, but take a look anyway.
3) Human Error. This is the most common problem, and usually hardest to find. There may have been an oversite at some other part of the stage.
4) In many cases, errors are expected. Therefore, consult the lfs website for expected errors. (This is not the same thing as the "expected errors and unexpected errors" that dejagnu spit-out; This is instead a list of problems that the LFS team or any bug-report submitters found. I am not sure specifically where it is anymore as their website changed (and it looks much nice now ) so do some searching yourself.

Once you go through each of these and have a problem, or if you have a question any of these, please reply. I'll peek my head in from time to time, depending on how busy I am.
