Just finished the last GCC compilation, please tell me if the following output is acceptable

So I'm at Chapter 6.17 (GCC) using version 7.9-systemd, using an x86_64 architecture.

After compiling, and running `make -k check`, I get this strange (but apparently non-fatal) error immediately after:

make[2]: autogen: Command not found
Makefile:176: recipe for target 'check' failed
make[2]: *** [check] Error 127
make[2]: Leaving directory '/sources/gcc-5.3.0/build/fixincludes'
Makefile:3560: recipe for target 'check-fixincludes' failed
make[1]: *** [check-fixincludes] Error 2
The test output however matches that of the logs located for my version in the LFS website, so I think that it's still fine?

Also, searching for the header files the compiler is using gives me a slightly different output instead of the expected /usr/lib/gcc/i686-pc-linux-gnu directory:

grep -B4 '^ /usr/include' dummy.log
gives me

#include <...> search starts here:
Is this okay?

If your output matches the build logs it should be fine. Here is what the book says...
Unless the test results are vastly different from those at the above URL, it is safe to continue.
The different output is also normal.
Depending on your machine architecture, the above may differ slightly, the difference usually being the name of the directory after /usr/lib/gcc.
So you should be fine.

Check always reports an overall failure if anything fails that the upstream developers don't consider to be an expected failure. That includes a few failures that are expected on LFS. That's why you use the -k option. If the failures are in the specimen log, you can ignore them.
