Thanks for the note...this seems to be the cause of more frusteration 
than any other part of the LFS book.  I'm not sure why so many people 
get past the "Locking in" of Glibc section without it being done 
properly.   The book maintainers have done lots to make sure this step 
is fool-proof by adding test, and checks to it.  Maybe a the word 
CAUTION could be added to the top of that page in 72 point flashing red 
text? ;)  I know i've done this several times myself, and always find 
myself wondering after hours of "Why doesn't this work?!" says to myself 
"You idiot, you did it again!" and/or "DOH!".  :D
