Using LFS version 5.1-pre1, I'm now up to Chapter6:
Installing bin-utils-2.14. Configure and make work
fine, but when I run the make check, I get one failure
in the ld tests:

FAIL: bootstrap with --static.

All the other are fine.  

Any idea what could be causing this?  

I am using exactly the package versions specified in
the book.  Also the cc dummy.c readelf a.out test
works fine, showing /lib/ as my linker. 
My host system is a stock Suse 9.0, with the 2.4.21
