glibc and /dev/null in the chrooted environment

ok, this has got me stumped...  my guess is that it's probably some dumb 
little error on my part, but i just can't find it.

i'm building another lfs system on my other machine and when i get to 
enter the chrooted environment and run the script listed on lfs 3.0 for 
glibc i get this error:

loading cache ./config.cache
../glibc-2.2.4/configure: /dev/null: Permission denied
../glibc-2.2.4/configure: /dev/null: Permission denied
configure: error: can not run ../glibc-2.2.4/scripts/config.sub

so...  it's bailing before it even gets through the configure...  ouch
what's confusing is that /dev/null is created in the first step of that 
script.  i looked through the archives, and found a thread suggesting 
that i just exit the chrooted env and reenter it, but that didn't do 
anything different.

anyone else run into this before?
