help with toolchain reuse LFS5.2 at at
Sun Apr 18 08:00:24 PDT 2004

I have saved one toolchain after completing LFS and I have saved another
after completing chapter5.    Both gave the same result.

The LFS book states that tcl, dejagnu and expect should be re-installed
with prefix=/usr.  I am trying to do as instructed without success.  I 
also  am unable to install glibC-2.3.3.  

Thanks for your suggestion and if you have others please let me have them.
