Thigns are going well, if slow. I'm up to fileutils, but I get erros
when I run compile:

sunspot:/mnt/lfs/usr/src/fileutils-4.1# LDFLAGS=static ./configure \
--disable-nls --prefix=$LFS/static
checking build system type... sparc-unknown-linux-gnu
checking host system type... sparc-unknown-linux-gnu
checking for a BSD compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking for mawk... mawk
checking whether make sets ${MAKE}... yes
checking for perl5.003 or newer... yes
checking for gcc... gcc
checking for C compiler default output... configure: error: C compiler
cannot create executables

Obviouslt, gcc has been doing jsut that for a few packages now. Anyone
have any idea on how to fix this? 

Thanks for any help.
