I was wondering if something like that would happen.

I've created a new branch, /LFS/branches/test, that has the modified 
instructions.  You can use that to build a new lfs.

I suppose that you could also try to just chroot from the host and 
rebuild glibc as in Chapter 6 with the sed.  I think in that case you 
might get away with:

sed -i -e 's/static __m128i/inline &/' sysdeps/x86_64/multiarch/strstr.c

mkdir -v ../glibc-build
cd ../glibc-build

../glibc-2.18/configure    \
     --prefix=/usr          \
     --disable-profile      \
     --enable-kernel=2.6.32 \
make install

Nothing else should change.  The fallback would be to do a complete rebuild.
