Ok then, and ignoring whatever is causing your current problem,

starting with an /old/ prerelease version of the book is never a good
idea.  Starting with 5.0 itself is ok (you get all the vulnerabilities
which later kernels and a later glibc will fix).

Hopefully we'll have 5.1 released by the time you're ready for your
second full build.  Note that I'm /not/ saying that ripping out what
you've got and doing the exact same build with 5.0 will buy you
anything, only that 5.0 would have been a more-predictable place to
start, because prereleae versions of the book almost always have
something wrong with them.

(whoops, cut out your comment about the chroot dance...) By "in chroot"
I mean whatever is accessible when you are in the chroot jail.  So,
`ls -l /usr/include/stdio.h' "in chroot"  should show a date and time
during the period when you were running `make install' for glibc in
chapter 6, whereas when you run the same ls command in a different
terminal you will see the date the date that the host's glibc was

And I'm sorry I don't have any more suggestions for what is causing your
current problem.
