LFS 5.0 with Kernel 2.6.5 -> util-linux 2.12a SEVERE PROBLEM


I'm having problems at the time of building the mount utils within the util-linux package. as suggested by the LFS-5.0 book, i do the following:

cp configure configure.backup
sed "s@/usr/include@/tools/include@g" configure.backup > configure

make -C lib
make -C mount mount umount (as book suggest, I only compile the support for mounting devices)
make -C text-utils more

and with the make -C mount mount umount command, it says there's several errors in mount.c

can anyone help me get this problem resolved? what must I do to solve this?
