I'd prefer a more advanced person answer your call, but for what it is
worth, this is my reaction.

I had trouble with glibc too, with RedHat 9, but have since gone through
that phase successfully. Reflecting back on what I may have dome wrong
my mind turns to the filemask, i.e. the permissions. 

In one attempt I may have overlooked to issue the command
	chmod a+wt $LFS/sources 
ref. bottom Introduction to Ch. 4.

Also, after logging into /home/lfs, I changed to superuser mode to
ensure root would take care of file permission issues. It got me through
Ch. 5 unscathed except for a couple of warnings during test runs that
certain tests could not be performed because of su. 

To be sure, I am a rank amateur so I do hope you will get a better
response from someone more qualified.
