I'm on an AMD Athlon XP-2000+, so maybe you have the right idea about 
the wrong processor.

Also - I did use the same source directory as for the previous build.  
I suppose I can try again with a clean extract from the tar.  I suppose 
it is sometimes a good thing to be pessimistic.  For now, I'll wait to 
hear if anyone has any more ideas about how important this is.  
Can anoyone say whether this type of error might end up changing which 
glibc is used in the book before 5.1 is formally released?
