I've continued, and there does not seem to be any major issues.  For the case
of safety, however, once chapter 6 was completed, I started it over to ensure
a clean and proper build.

In addition, I am not going for a vanilla build; Some of the packages I intend
to use are not covered by the vanilla HLFS build, including Metalog, dhcpd, and

I think the failures are based in the fact that I'm building a hardened system
in a differently-hardened system (gentoo-hardened), and the two sets of options
are conflicting with one another.

Okay.  What information would be appropriate for such a situation.  The system
is a 2.8GHz P4 with 1GB of RAM.  The host OS is a hardened Gentoo system using
kernel  Pax does seem to be installed, which accounts for the original
issue that started this thread.  Having passed that hurdle, however, there does
not seem to be any instability at this time.
