Fileutils 4.1 Build Error

I just went back and tried to build LFS from the cvs and have run into a 
problem with fileutils-4.1.  I'm using version 2.4.4 LFS and which uses 
GCC 2.95.2 and glibc 2.2.1.  The error I'm getting is:

$ gcc  -g -O2  -static -o chgrp  chgrp.o chown-core.o ../lib/libfetish.a
/usr/lib/libc.a(atexit.o): In function `atexit':
atexit.o(.text+0x0): multiple definition of `atexit'
first defined here
/usr/bin/ld: Warning: size of symbol `atexit' changed from 26 to 42 in 
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

I did a search on LFS to see if this had been reported before, but if it 
has, I couldn't find it.  Anybody have any ideas about how to fix this 
other than backing up to an earlier version of fileutils?
