CH. 5 Testing Glibc: FATAL: kernel too old

I've barelly started building the testing LFS and have run into a problem:

Durring the pass 1 build of Glibc I get the following:

CPP='gcc -B/tools/bin/ -E -x c-header' 
/lfs/srcs/glibc-build/elf/ --library-path 
/lfs/srcs/glibc-build/sunrpc/rpcgen -Y ../scripts -c 
rpcsvc/bootparam_prot.x -o /lfs/srcs/glibc-build/sunrpc/xbootparam_prot.T
FATAL: kernel too old
make[2]: *** [/lfs/srcs/glibc-build/sunrpc/xbootparam_prot.stmp} Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/lfs/srcs/glibc-2.3.4-20040701/sunrpc'
make[1]: *** [sunrpc/others] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/lfs/srcs/glibc-2.3.4-20040701'
make: *** [all] Error2

The host system is a 2.4 series kernel, is that the problem?

I swear I've seen this discussed recently, however I didn't find any 
messages about it in a search through those I have.
