Thanks, I did not finish building my system yet, but everything is OK so far.

I think LFS version doesn't mater that much.
Just because all the packages are taken from the 'clean source', i.e.
they ( for sure ) are not patched by distribution makers just to cope with their
I also think this particular case with gcc is even theoretically harmless for us,
because just API which glibc-2.2 exports has been slightly changed.
Therefore, any incompatibilities can be discovered at compile phase.
And I am excited about brave people using beta compilers ...
