Illegal instruction usually happens when you attempt to run a binary
compiled for the wrong processor.
Are you using extra optimizations? 

echo $CFLAGS

has to report nothing.

Have you configured your gcc to produce code for a platform other than
i386 by default?

Check if your PATH is set correctly so that the correct gcc is used to
compile glibc.


God is real, unless declared integer.
