just got to the chapter about glibc. the patch mentioned there is -1.
so i feel better about that one. and speaking of explanatory text, the
book says to unpack both glibc and glibc-libidn. glibc-libidn unpacked
into the PWD, not into the glibc-2.3.5 directory. I assume it is
supposed to be under the glibc-2.3.5 directory, so i moved it there.

incidentally, this is HLFS-BOOK-SVN-20050508. i'm on ch 5.6 right now.
