Thanks Gerard.  That sorted it.  Does this mean that I can't use 
optimize flags with gawk?  Or if I wait until I've finished, and then 
reinstall it on my new LFS system, should it be okay to compile it with 
the optimization flags again?  I understand the optimization is a bit of 
a tricky process, so if you've no idea, don't worry about it.  Just 
thought maybe I could pick you brain...

Thanks again,
