I may have done something wrong on building the LFS pre-chroot but I've done

image of ed.  So here is what is happening.  When I run:

 ./configure --prefix=/usr

My system hangs at:

  Checking whether we are using GNU C...

Now, while it hangs I run top and I see that I have a whole bunch of cpp
processes.  In fact it looks like it just keeps respawning cpp - and then it
never goes away.  I think if I leave it long enough it goes on but it still
has too many copies of cpp running for compiling other things to work. 
run into this before - it is kind of frustrating.

Also, I tried to compile some other packages and I get the same problem at
different places (all in configure scripts) I'm going back to take alook at my
gcc install right now.  If you have any idea what I should look for
specifically I'd really appreciate it.
