Thank you for all your help, Gerard.
I got an strace output, but I can't make heads nor tails of it.  I 
installed LFS 3.3 using a homebrew package manager similar to the LFS 
hint from Matthias Benkmann that creates a user for each package.  
Config.guess is probably a permissions problem that I have no easy 
answer to.  At any rate, it doesn't look like I can get there from 
here. I suppose I'll just hack around until something breaks loose.  
Thanks again for your help.
