I am trying to setup a be-lfs and hope this is a good place to get help 
since I could not find a mailing list for be-lfs-support.

Here is the rundown during the chapter 6 install of glibc (in chroot) 
when I run the command "make -k check" it gives errors with the 
following tests and do not give any real info about what is wrong. The 
make command finishes successfully so I don't know what to do.

make[2]: *** [/sources/glibc-build/nptl/tst-cond8.out] Error 1
make[2]: *** [/sources/glibc-build/nptl/tst-cancelx4.out] Error 1
make[2]: *** [/sources/glibc-build/nptl/tst-cancelx5.out] Error 1
make[2]: *** [/sources/glibc-build/nptl/tst-cancelx16.out] Error 1
make[2]: *** [/sources/glibc-build/nptl/tst-cancelx17.out] Error 1
make[2]: *** [/sources/glibc-build/nptl/tst-cancelx20.out] Error 1
make[2]: *** [/sources/glibc-build/nptl/tst-cancelx21.out] Error 1
make[2]: Target `tests' not remade because of errors.
make[1]: *** [nptl/tests] Error 2
make[1]: Target `check' not remade because of errors.
make: *** [check] Error 2

Some other info.

Using be-lfs book version: CVS-2004-04-24
Host is a 2 year old LFS install that has over time had every package 
upgraded except glibc and gcc
note that is why I am setting this new install up since I heard newer 
gcc can give a speed boost in my programs and it needs a new version of 
glibc which can't just be upgraded without breaking most things.
and I have followed the book exactly

Here is a example of the output from just before a error as to show that 
there is no real info

GCONV_PATH=/sources/glibc-build/iconvdata LC_ALL=C   
/sources/glibc-build/elf/ld --library-path
