Another update in case someone else is trying to compile on (very) low-end
hardware ;)
Wasn't hardware issue, but user lacking knowledge. Seems I've been running
out of memory.
Used 96MB RAM and 192MB swap, which I thought would be enough, *wrong* After
increasing the swap partition to 1GB, the compiling goes quite well, and I'm
back in LFS-6.0 :D
A few tests failed due to some timeout issue, which I think is caused by the
slow hardware, also mentioned in the LFS book. Going on the 4th day of
compiling now, hopefully be finished tomorrow ;)

Thanks everyone
