 This looks worryingly similar to your earlier post without a
subject (syntax error on the line DL=...).  I use the expression
"worryingly" both because sh syntax errors in the book are
uncommon, and also because you *apparently* got past that
earlier problem after Bruce gave you some advice on debugging
the error, but the list has no idea _how_ you got past that

 Sometimes, it is worth recording solutions, so that if someone
else repeats the problem they can find the solution.  I don't
know if this is one of those cases.

 Looking at repeated problems apparently stemming from bash
in chroot, I start to wonder if your version of bash in /tools is
somehow broken (I can remember having that sort of problem
in cross-lfs, but that was specific to cross-compiling), or else if
you have somehow omitted or miscreated the /bin/bash ->
/tools/bin/bash or /tools/bin/sh -> bash symlinks, although it
seems unlikely those would do this.

 You said you were using 6.5.  Is this 64-bit or 32-bit, and
what is your host system ?

After tragedy, and farce, "OMG poneys!"
