The reason libssp is not found is simply because it's not *supposed* to 
be. GCC has not yet been installed in Chapter 6, into /usr, so the only 
libssp present at the time Glibc is being built is in /tools. However, 
since Glibc is supposed to go into /usr, it will not link to anything in 
/tools, including libssp. Again, this is exactly how it is supposed to 
be. The problem is simply that Glibc is not *supposed* to be looking for 
libssp at all, so you should not attempt to "fix" it by forcing it to 
link to libssp. You need to find the root of the problem by determining 
why Glibc is even trying to find libssp in the first place.

Arguably, you could also just symlink /usr/lib/libssp.so -> /tools, but 
this is simply another workaround, not an actual fix.
