LFS chapter 5.14 install fails

Everything has been okay in steps leading up until the make install step of bash-3.2. That step errors due to an apparently missing file. I am building on an ubuntu 8.04 system. I'm composing this on a windows box (where my email is) and I think something got lost in pasting from linux to wordpad. The test -z line file was probably something like rather than In any case, the fail messages begin in make[2] and are shown below with the missing file being

lfs@front-office:/mnt/lfs/sources/bash-3.2$ make install
make[1]: Entering directory `/mnt/lfs/sources/bash-3.2/builtins'
make[1]: Nothing to be done for `install'.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/mnt/lfs/sources/bash-3.2/builtins'
( cd ./po/ ; make DESTDIR= install )
make[1]: Entering directory `/mnt/lfs/sources/bash-3.2/po'
test -z "" || make
make[2]: Entering directory `/mnt/lfs/sources/bash-3.2/po'
make[2]: `' is up to date.
make[2]: `' is up to date.
rm -f && : -c --statistics -o ru.po
mv: cannot stat `': No such file or directory
make[2]: *** [] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/mnt/lfs/sources/bash-3.2/po'
make[1]: *** [stamp-po] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/mnt/lfs/sources/bash-3.2/po'
make: [install] Error 2 (ignored)

Any ideas?

I tracked down the posted link and apparently this error is a warning and can be ignored. Therefore, I'll proceed. Thanks
