why are you taking shortcuts?? the book does not say to do this..........&& make LDFLAGS="-all-static" && make install
do it right the way the book says,--- that way you can track down any errors that pop up...........

If you want the SBU values listed in the rest of the book to be of any use, you will have to measure the time it takes to build this package -- from the configuration up to and including the first install. To achieve this easily, you could wrap the four commands in a time command like this: time { ./configure ... && ... && ... && make install; }.

i thought it would measure the time it took to compile so i could get a better idea of how long it would take to compile the other packages. anyway i tried each command seperatly and am now stuck at a different spot. here is the output:

I suggest checking the permission in the packages directory. And whenever there is a failure, it is best to delete the package's source, and re-untar the new, clean source package.

Edit:: I forgot to mention, you should clean the environment before unpacking the sources, just to make sure.
