Ok, thanks for the info and checking guys.

The fact this has reproduced itself a number of times suggests I am 
typing in something incorrectly. At least the error is consistent.

I'm assuming at this point that it is something I have typed incorrectly 
during the Chapter 6 glibc setup, as everything up to this point has 
worked as described.

I shall return to the beginning of the glibc build in this section and 
try again. Failing that, I will try lifting the input off the web page 
into some text files, to copy over to the build system and see how that 

Am I right in saying I can simply remove the glibc source and build 
directories and start again from the beginning of this stage? I'll do 
this unless anyone mentions otherwise.

Will keep the list updated with my progress and where it is I went wrong 
(if i can find that out of course!).

Thanks again guys.
