Seems I was too quick with that. I tested an install, saw my chapter 5 gcc did 
find the .hidden support as it should and all was well. I thought it was a 
gcc only problem, and since gcc-3.1 detected binutils properly I didn't think 
that patch was necessary. 

Just to reiterate: you're saying that even if you use gcc-3.1, the bug will 
still show up if the host system's binutils isn't sufficiently new enough? If 
that's the case, can't we fix this even easier by running this:

	PATH=$LFS/static/bin:$PATH ./configure \
		./gcc-3.2/configure --prefix=/static <and the rest here>

That would make GCC find the just compiled binutils from chapter 5 first, 
which is a new enough version, which then in turn should result in a properly 
compiled gcc and later on glibc?
