After failing to be able to use the tools from LFS 7.3 in 7.4, I decided to build the tools from the book 7.4. I soon ran into another problem: after building the tools up and until Binutils pass 2 without errors,  I got the following error building GCC, pass 2:

../../gcc-4.8.1/gcc/system.h:205:20: fatal error: cstring: No such file or directory

compilation terminated.

The file cstring is not found. I assume it has to be somewhere in the gcc-build but I don't know why not.

I deleted the tools and started anew, with the same result. The md5sum for GCC is correct and so are the system-requirements. The build-directories were deleted from /source after the pass 1-build.

Any idea what is wrong?
