Hi Uli,

Tks for your advice.

In chroot environment
root:/$ ln -s gcc /usr/bin/cc  (no printout)
root:/$ ls -l /usr/bin/cc
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root 3 2005-08-19 06:16 /usr/bin/cc
-> gcc


went through without problem except the last step as

root:/sources/xc/config/util$ cp -v lndir /usr/bin/
`lndir' -> `/usr/bin/lndir'
root:/sources/xc/config/util$ mkdir ../xcbuild &&
> cd ../xcbuild &&
> lndir ../xc
../xc: No such file or directory

root:/sources/xc/config/xcbuild$ ls
BUILD  config  doc  LABEL  lib  nls  programs  README 
README.crypto  registry  xf86Date.h

"../xc" may not find it.  I think full path
"/sources/xc" may find it.  Please advise how to fix
this last step.

I'm trying to build all essential packages such as
xorg, firefox, lynx, PPP-2.4.3, WvDial-1.54.0,
RP-PPPoE-3.5, GTK+-1.2.10, GTK+-2.6.7 first before
booting to LFS 6.1.  So I don't need to print the
whole BLFS 6.1 book and download all packages in
advance or burn them on CDs.
