 The only thing I can see in yours is right at the top, where it's
checking the sysdep dirs.  I've got a _lot_ more directories showing,
and in particular several linuxthreads directories (that was doing a
visual search/comparison for 'result', I'd forgotten my log would not
have all the detail of the tests).  Are you using the genuine
glibc-2.3.3-lfs-5.1 version of libc ?

 I'm basically none the wiser as to what the problem is, unless the
configure switch to enable linuxthreads wasn't there (but it usually
moans if you do that).
