I don't know the answer, but do you have this?

    /stage1/lib/ld-linux.so.2 -> ld-2.3.2.so

My config log has some differences before your failure point. Maybe
these are a clue?

   creating cache ./config.cache
   checking whether to use symlinks for manpages... no
   checking compression for manpages... no
   checking for gcc... gcc -s
   checking whether the C compiler (gcc -s  -s) works... yes
   checking whether the C compiler (gcc -s  -s) is a cross-compiler... no
   checking whether we are using GNU C... yes
   checking whether gcc -s accepts -g... yes

I use Ryan's test-harness scripts with a host of LFS 4.0, with some
upgrades and a few BLFS items, enough to get X working. In Ryan's
scripts, the glibc-2.3.2, gcc-3.2.2 and HJL binutils are used.

Also, there have been some posts about things that needed patching to
work correctly (mmap, vsnprintf) and the setting of the resolv.conf.
Maybe some of these have the solution?
