Not yet but I'm going to try it right now. I can't even get past the 
make World part now without the compile erroring out. Hmm, I just 
realized I have compiler optimizations set. I wonder if these could be 
the problem?:

export CFLAGS="-O3 -march=athlon-tbird -mcpu=athlon-tbird 
-fomit-frame-pointer -funroll-loops -s -pipe" &&

Those are the optimizations I use to compile everything that doesn't 
warn against it.

Also I'm doing this from within a chroot environment, which I know 
borked my attempt at installing Mozilla on my last LFS system. I'm 
hoping to use chroot to get just enough of a working LFS to comfortably 
continue from within the native environment. For me this means x with 
twm, gpm, ftp, and lynx or links and that's pretty much it.

I'll try using the hint now, and without optimizations. COme to think of 
it, I think I used that hint the last time I installed x, and it worked 
like a charm as you said...
