No problem

The high ego answer: I'm the head LFS guru here, I'm supposed to get 
everything working ;o)

Seriously, i just did it.

With glibc-2.2.x you need to use gcc- else you end up with c++ header 
problems (like being unable to compile ncurses). Yes, I'm using 

How I got everything installed? Using the exact commands the lfs-book has. I 
didn't use any optimization flags.
