Seems few people about Thursdays. Nothing wrong with Bach ...

It's probably easier to include this inline rather than as attachment

from Michael's attachment:

You're in ch6, which means you've been through all this before and if you 
followed the instructions, which I'm also assuming since you've got this far 
there should be no more hiccups at this stage. Are the >'s in the above a 
result of your copying and pasting? If not that's the only thing that strikes 
me odd, besides the errors of course which I've never seen before. (If 
there's now a file called --disable-profile in your glibc-build directory, 
there's your problem.
