Mine builds successfully through LFS cvs-20020521 using bin86-0.16.3
instead of the .2 version. I don't know it's related - I just got the
latest at that time.

On the platform (RH 6.2) ld -v shows 

   GNU ld version 2.9.5 (with BFD

My BILLS system that does the install does the checks for CPU (P200-MMX)
glibc versions and so on that the book mentions.

This has also installed successfully on an IBM6x86-II PR-300 with LFS 3.3

Should be OK for 3.3 if my experience indicates anything.
