I'm not sure if this is included in the current findutils patch in lfs' cvs, 
but on my version (lfs-20020306) locate suffers from a bug with long path or 
filenames that causes a segfault.  I haven't seen this discussed on the 
mailing lists, so I assume the current cvs suffers from the same bug.  The 
bug and solution are here 
(http://www.geocrawler.com/mail/msg.php3?msg_id=2072290&list=379).  This 
should probably be added to the patch for fileutils.  Thanks for doing such a 
great job with LFS, it was a pleasure to install and is great to use.
