We have seen weird problems when compiler optimizations are used. Since you 
build off LFS-2.3.7 you probably have compiled lfs-2.3.7's gcc and binutils 
with compiler optimization. It would be wise to reinstall gcc and binutils on 
the lfs-2.3.7 system before building the lfs-2.4 system.

You can, if you want, pretend that lfs-2.3.7's gcc version isn't suitable to 
build Glibc and install a new copy of gcc in /usr/local/gcc2952 like the book 
suggests. Do reinstall Binutils though.
