thx very much for the help!

i must have carelessly installed the wrong libc6 (ie. woody rather
than potato).

the problem cleared after going to libc6 2.1.3-10.

it might help others to mention that doing a "make clean" in the
make-3.79.1 directory after going back to libc6 2.1.3-10 wasn't
enough--the error still occurred.  i had to remove the directory and
unpack make-3.79.1.tar.bz2 to get a clean start.

thank you for your guidance.
