Should have written "I have no idea".

Sorry for the rumbling of yesterday (not sure if this is the right word).

I have tried the new apache-ant in more other systems, always build
successful. So, the "other " machine were I found the problem is
probably this one, I was too busy with the new system, and
underestimated the consequences. Hard way of learning the lesson. :-)

It would be good to discover what happened. Have just seen a patch for
strace, by ĸen. Would strace be of any help? Anyway, I will give it a
try later, this afternoon, after starting another LFS build.

Bruce, is it right if I understand the problem is with glibc?

I went to sleep, after that post. In the middle of night/morning, woke
up, came to my machine, and decided that would build a new system, now
from svn, using 7.4-rc1 to bootstrap. Started by installing gparted,
have already partitioned. Later today, start it, was still too tired to

This new system will hopefully run java, so I will be able to tag OJDK,
with it. And use the old one to go on tagging other applications. If
everything works, svn will become my new preferred host and vm.

I have also to thank Bruce for the support and time he spent with this,
I was so disappointed yesterday, that I forgot this.
