Subscribe to LFS-dev mailing list for a while, and check it's archives for 
glibc-2.3.   There are several approaches to doing this, the LFS guys haven't 
decided which to go with.
For what it's worth I am running a sucessful LFS 4+(cvs-late october) with 
gcc-3.2.1(cvs) with glibc-2.3.1 using Matthias Benkmann's LD_LIBERRY (yes 
thats how it's spelt) patch.  To find out more you do really need to read all 
the lfs-dev archives on this though.
Good Luck!
Cheers, Richard.
