I received the following error in the "make check" step of Ch. 6, LFS
5.1pre1 Installing Glibc 2.3.3.  I recall having this the first time,
and it may be the cause of the gcc install error I reported a couple of
days ago (I've added line continuations to avoid confusing email clients.

GCONV_PATH=/sources/glibc-build/iconvdata LC_ALL=C \
/sources/glibc-build/elf/ --library-path \
/sources/glibc-build/linuxthreads /sources/glibc-build/io/test-lfs  \
> /sources/glibc-build/io/test-lfs.out
Timed out: killed the child process

make: *** [check] Error 2

All of the libraries passed to test-lfs exist, and test-lfs itself
exists.  test-lfs.out exists and is empty.  I'm building on a SuSE 9.0
host.  I have about 6GB of space available.  I can't think of anything
else to add.

I have been very careful to make sure I haven't omitted or "adjusted"
any steps in Ch. 6.
