There are just too many hours in the process of getting where I am now to do
I'll probably do that, anyway, after I've finnished this first go at the
book, but not now if I can help it.

I've compiled glibc ok with this extra option, which I saw
here: --without-cvs (I don't know what that does). With that option glibc
compiled ok. All other packages installed without problems. From where I
stand I see 4 paths: rm -rf ..., recompiling glibc again, plain copying the
timezone structure from my stock redhat 7.0, and living without tzselect.
(BTW I live in Portugal and my timezone is GMT)

Thanks for your input but it's yet too soon to give up on this system yet.
I've also compiled everything with -O3 -march=i686 and I want to see if it
makes a diference (if this ever gets to the init phase). I'm in a learning
stage and IMHO nothing better than a few problems to really learn and
understand what's involved.
