I am trying to compile lilo as per chapter 6 but the when I run make I
get an error:

cc -E `(if [ -r $ROOT/etc/lilo.defines ]; then cat
$ROOT/etc/lilo.defines; else echo -DBDATA -DDSECS -DIGNORECASE -DLBA32
-DSOLO_CHAIN -DVARSETUP -DVERSION; fi ) | sed 's/-D/-DLCF_/g'` `[ -r
/usr/include/asm/boot.h ] && echo -DHAS_BOOT_H` -DCODE_START_1=136
-DCODE_START_2=14 -DBITMAP second.S -o temp2.s cc -E -C -traditional
-DLILO_ASM -o temp2.o temp2.s
make:as86:Command not found
make:***[temp2.o]Error 127

I tried to remove the -g from the CFLAGS variable already as per the
book. I am using book version 20020609 by the way.
