The toolchain saved after completeion of ch5 is the one to use. But why are
you so set on compiling tcl, and friends straight away? They should be living
quite happily in your tool-chain from which they will be used when required.
The reason for the re-installation of these packages after you've completed
LFS is so that you can do checks on extra packages you may want to install
after LFS is complete and you don't want to keep the toolchain hanging
The fact that make_devices and man-pages worked is not surprising since no
compilation (and hence no gcc) is involved with them. The error-log you
provided for glibc is not really sufficient except that it corroberates the
fact that gcc isn't working.
The only thing I can think of now is that something went wrong with your
archiving of the tool-chain. Do you remember how you accomplished this?
One final suggestion - it is considered rude to top-post on these lists. This
is also covered in the faq someplace under netiquette.
Cheers - Allard.
