A person just can’t install Bash 4.3 with the latest patch level 26 and expect it to build without updating Readline 6.3. This is discussed in another thread somewhere in all of the bash issues of LFS-Support or LFS-Dev.

I downloaded the patch: readline-6.3-upstream_fixes-2.patch, and it says 
that it contains patch numbers 001-006.
You mentioned that you need to install readline 6.3 patch level
8. Is there a newer patch that I need to use instead? I
got the readline-6.3-upstream_fixes-2.patch patch from the
linuxfromscratch website.
