touch command not found

I've reached this part of the install

touch /var/run/utmp /var/log/{btmp,lastlog,wtmp}

And I'm getting touch command not found

Edit - chmod and chgrp don't work either.

Sounds like you're missing coreutils -- or you would be if you were installing Debian. I don't know whether the name "coreutils" applies to other distros. Maybe somebody will mention this. chmod and chgrp are part of coreutils ...
