Hmm ok well it would be helpfull too if configure gave me more
information then this too. but that basicly is what its complaining
about.  Ill post the entie output retyped as im not connected to the
internet on that machine

after applying the patch to glib-1.2.10
./configure --prefix=/usr
<normal stuff>
checking host system type... Invalid configureation
'x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu': Machine 'x86_64-unknown' not recongnized

checkeing build system type... Invalid configuration
'x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu' : machine 'x86_64-unknown' not recognized

<more stuff that looks ok>

loading cache ./config.cache withn ltconfig
ltconfig: you must specify a host type if you use '--no-verify'
try 'ltconfig --help' for more information.
configure: error: libtool configure failed

this is the lateset version of CLFS its a pure64 so there is no lib64
directory in /usr

sigh ive got some information online that says that some packages have
issues with this host name. x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu it says to add
that in the config.guess somewhere but im not sure where i would add
this or what to use as a --host= option for configure.
