No. You failed to provide any information on the host distribution, the
build environment, configure arguments, etc. Building a large project
such as IcedTea from source is a big undertaking, with many options. You
need to first make certain that your build environment is at least
relatively sane, something that we are unable to determine without you
providing the information necessary to make that determination.

In the future, please first direct support questions to a related
support list for your distribution. In this case, since your question is
related to BLFS instructions, you should first try the BLFS suport list
at blfs-support at linuxfromscratch.org so that they can be evaluated by
the appropriate support community before requesting help from upstream
developers. If the inquiry is relevant to the upstream developers, you
will be directed there by the support community. The build errors and
the last few lines of make's output prior to any error should be
sufficient context to assist in determining a build problem for most
projects. The complete output of the 'set' command might also be a
useful first step toward evaluating your build environment.
