Its  has paid off, I now have a lfs system running glibc2.3. Just to recap 
on what i did :-  
Build a static dir as in Chapter 5. 
Entered the chmod environment and compiled glibc2.3.  
Exit the chmod environment and replaced bash with redhats8 bash. 
Re-entered chmod environment and compiled sh-utils, file utils, findutils, 
and bison as in chapter 6. 
Then recreated the static dir as in chapter 5. Now i have as static dir 
binary compatible with glibc2.3. 
To make sure glibc2.3 is properly installed i got rid of everything on my 
$LFS partion expect the new static dir and started chapter 6 again. 
The reason why gcc didn't compiles is because some last minute changes were 
made in glibc 2.3. See for 
information and patch. 
Good luck everyone.
