I  started a build of LFS-6.2 under a LFS-6.2 host.  I want to create a dual 
boot system, one for a server and the second for a desktop system.  I have 
the first (server system) complete and had started on the desktop build.  The 
system only has a single LFS system on it presently.  The build has been 
successful until Chapter 6.  

At Chapter 6.9 Glibc-2.3.6 I get the following error when on the configuring 
glibc step: 
checking sizeof long double... configure: error: cannot compute sizeof (long 
double), 77

I have searched the archive and google and according to those sources it is a 
version problem or I am missing in the /tools/lib directory.  I do 
have link to

Does anyone have any more insight into this error?
