glibc configure hangs

This morning I finished my last exam so I decided to build a new LFS 
3.0-pre4 system.

My base system is a LFS 2.4 system with kernel 2.4.2. I compiled all static 
programs entered chroot environment and started compiling glibc. When 
running 'configure' I get the output below and then the program just stops. 
I waited for 2 minutes and more, but nothing else happened.

I think I did something wrong along the way but what?
