Not sure what you meant with LFS 2.4, so just give you the ones I have:
lfs-REO2: glibc-2.2.1 info fork = info page man fork = man page (differ)
lfs-RUNE3: glibc-2.2.4 same (this is in-work CVS)

info fork here is glibc.info Node: creating a process up: processes
followed up has the entries at the bottom and up: top
follwoed to has the entry at 2nd page, middle for processes
man has has just short explanation, about 2 pages.

Hope this is what you needed.
