I'm pretty sure that I followed the directions, cause I got this same
error three times now. (Everytime that I try again, I DO remove the old
directories and start this step from scratch)  I extracted glibc,
untarred it; then extracted linuxthreads in glibc directory and untarred
it. Typed in the command from the book, and this is what was returned to
me:

updating cache ./config.cache


On the "file is too large" thing - the files have the following sizes
(in order) 94 bytes, 8155 bytes, 2940, 1718, and 1667.  That's not too
large, is it?

Then it seems to hang right there at updating cache (I left it running
for 1.5 hours one time).  Can anyone tell from this what I'm doing
wrong?  Do you need the entire output from configure?

TIA
