	I installed all the headers that are needed just fine. :)  It was the missing 
glibc-linuxthreads package that was messing me up.  There was no mention of 
having to retrieve this and unpack it in the glibc-2.3.2 directory prior to 
trying to configure and build glibc.  This needs to be added to the section 
on building glibc - I would have not had any problems at all if this had been 
in the glibc section. :D
