I am installing LFS on Pentium-III - Compaq - Presario. In Chapter-6 of the 
book: LFS-BOOK-SVN-20051015-HTML, while configuring glibc-2.3.5, I get the 
following error:

See `config.log' for more details.

The relevent extract from config.log from 'glibc-build' directory is as 
below. Seems it cannot locate '/tools/bin/gcc', which is very much there.
Also, maybe a clash between 'linuxthreads' and 'nptl' . I am not sure though 
and am at a loss what is to be done.

Kindly help.

Thanks & Regards.
