cc dummy.c fails - chap. 6.12 of LFS 6.1.1 - please help

I was sure that I am following the book, however I must have missed something.
Please help me find a way to repair my LFS.

glibc compilation and tests were OK,
ld was installed properly, and so was (I guess) the gcc specs amendments.

search order of ld:
ld --verbose | grep SEARCH


and the dummy test fails:

cc dummy.c


crt1.o: no such file or directory
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

It seams like ld is trying to find crt1.o somewhere else, not in /usr/lib where it is.

From "gcc -v dummy.c" I could see that crt1.o, crti.o and crtn.o didn't have any path-prefix in the command line invoking collect2. There were several -L directives, all beginning with /tools/...

I am looking forward for your comments...

I found the solution myself.
The problem was in the specs amendment (as the book says).

After invoking the perl script the specs should become:

I was missing the trailing slash.
It was it.
Now everything works perfect!

Sorry for my bothering you.
Still, someone may make similar mistake, and my post may be useful.

Right says the FAQ: "book good - follow the book".
