why my glibc configure failed

Hello backend testers,
In chapter 5 the configure script of glibc failed with
checking LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable... contains current directory
*** LD_LIBRARY_PATH shouldn't contain the current directory when
*** building glibc. Please change the environment variable
*** and run configure again.
I checked if my LD_LIBRARY_PATH contains a dot.
It was set to "/usr/local/qt/lib:".
The colon at the end is the problem. Bash adds the current dir
to the path, if it contains an empty field. Check if your
LD_LIBRARY_PATH starts or ends with a colon or semicolon. Also
check that it doesn't contain two separators without anything
Hope that helps,
