Hmm...strange.  I have no idea.  Have to look back into history a bit.

ready for LFS-6.4, though we are getting there.  Create a Track account 
and follow along with the bugs there, and be very conscious of any 
configure output for missing deps.  That said, your build should be 
LFS-6.4 Final minus a couple of locales for test suite coverage IIRC.

Good luck, and congrats!
