Glibc-2.2.5 build problem

When building Glibc-2.2.5 at the beginning of Chapter 6, Version 
20020908, I keep getting the error:

Makerules: 679 *** multiple target patterns. Stop
make[1]: leaving
make: *** [all] Error 2

I tried it several times, every time deleting the glibc-2.2.5 
sources and the directories, unpacking the sources 
As host system I first used LFS Version 20020215 and later tried 
SuSE 7.3. 
I even tried to build Glibc-2.2.5 from the Version 20020908 
tarball, but following the 20020215 book, which seems to apply a 
sed routine instead of the patch. There were no differences in 
the mentioned error message.

Any hints will be appreciated.

Gerald or Bill, probably for technical reasons(?), any hints from 
users who might have come upon the same problem will be greatly 
I went through the more recent postings mentioning Problems with 
Glibc-2.2.5 but did not find anything exactly matching the 
"multiple target patterns" message.
