I was having quite a few issues with the --enable-kernel options (added
according to your lfs tweaks page).  Gcc was failing on make bootstrap under
CVS 20020901(ish).  Prior to that I was getting segfaults on random packages
in chapter 6 (binutils, fileutils, etc).  The only differences between what
I was doing and the CVS was the --enable-kernel option.

My base build system was a stock slackware 8.0 install, and I even d/l'd and
upgraded to slack 8.1 in an attempt to get a successful lfs build.  I got
so frustrated, I almost gave up on lfs, but I waited for a few days and built
CVS 20020911 successfully leaving out the --enable-kernel option according to
the warning, so I do think there was something wrong related to that warning.

Considering the fact glibc takes about 12 hours to build on my system, I was
getting pretty sick of getting only 10-15% through chapter 6 before the wheels
fell off. ;)
