Hello while compiling glibc-2.2.1 (See message below)This error comes up 
everytime I type Make Install?  Is this something I should expect? I didn't 
think that it should be doing this but here are the last few lines of output 
can anyone give me any advice?  Also a error comes up when I issue make, if 
I move onto ed-0.2, is this a common problem between both of the programs? 
Something I didn't do earlier correctly? I didn't see anything in common in 
the errors but thought I should ask
