It is not that I want linuxthreads.  Just following the book instructions and reporting the results.  Perhaps the lines:

     # Then install the man pages.

     make -C ../glibc-2.3.4/linuxthreads/man &&
     make -C ../glibc-2.3.4/linuxthreads/man install

should be removed from the build instructions for glibc in chapter 6.
