i am using the intel-3.0-pre1-book. so far it seems all right but ./configure 
glibc 2.2.1 fails.

this is waht i do:
touch /etc/
mkdir /usr/src/glibc-build
cd /usr/src/glibc-build
../glibc-2.2.1/configure --prefix=/usr --enable-add-ons --libexecdir=/usr/bin

and this is what i get:
[... seems all good so far ...]
checking installed Linux kernel header files... 2.0.10 or later
*** You should not compile the GNU libc without the `linuxthreads'
*** add-on.  Not using them risks being incompatible with the
*** libraries of other systems.  Consider getting the add-on and restarting
*** the configuration.
*** If you really mean to not use this add-on, run configure again
*** using the extra parameter `--disable-sanity-checks'.
I have no name!:

i have also tried ...
../glibc-2.2.1/configure --prefix=/usr --enable-add-ons=linuxthreads \

... with this result:
configure: error: add-on directory "linuxthreads" does not exist

is it a good idea to compile with --disable-sanity-checks? or should i try 
something else?
