   Everything looks fine. Those commands should have produced a usable 
Makefile.I duplicated your commands and have no problem .. this may be 
unique to Unbuntu. Directory permissions should be ok but check that 
mnt/lfs/sources permission is 1777

   Could you tell me the contents of...
   lfs-commands/chapter05/028-binutils-pass1 ( there should be the cmd 
mkdir -v ..binutils-build )
