I thought I had fixed the links already. I will check into it asap and
fix it.

during installing glibc don't create gcc-build but glibc-build.
LFS-2.4.4 does not mention gcc-build in the installation of glibc at
all. Please go back and make sure you are reading the right page
(perhaps you were reading the gcc installation in stead of the glibc
installation by accident?)
