After my lfs installation i got the warning:

interface eth0 does not exist.

Now i want to recompile the kernel and i did the following using the life cd

make clean
make mrproper
make menuconfig
After selecting the correct network support i get the following error:

/bin/sh: -c: line 0: syntax error near unexpected token `('
/bin/sh: -c: line 0: `set -e; echo '  CHK     include/linux/version.h'; mkdir -p include/linux/;        if [ `echo -n " .file null .ident GCC:(GNU)4.0.3 .section .note.GNU-stack,,@progbits" | wc -c ` -gt 64 ]; then echo '" .file null .ident GCC:(GNU)4.0.3 .section .note.GNU-stack,,@progbits" exceeds 64 characters' >&2; exit 1; fi; (echo \#define UTS_RELEASE \" .file null .ident GCC:(GNU)4.0.3 .section .note.GNU-stack,,@progbits\"; echo \#define LINUX_VERSION_CODE `expr 2 \\* 65536 + 6 \\* 256 + 16`; echo '#define KERNEL_VERSION(a,b,c) (((a) << 16) + ((b) << 8) + (c))'; ) < /sources/linux- > include/linux/version.h.tmp; if [ -r include/linux/version.h ] && cmp -s include/linux/version.h include/linux/version.h.tmp; then rm -f include/linux/version.h.tmp; else echo '  UPD     include/linux/version.h'; mv -f include/linux/version.h.tmp include/linux/version.h; fi'

I would suggest starting from a clean build tree from the kernel source tarball (making sure to backup your .config). Either that, or try the one thing I didn’t see in your attempt(s): “make distclean”.
