How odd.  Must be some quirk of older libc's--the problem didn't 
occur on my system.  Then again, I'm building LFS off of LFS.

If you have the time, could you try the attached patch in Ch. 5?  
It _should_ fix the problem and allow you to keep the 
-D_GNU_SOURCE flag.  If so it can probably just be merged with 
the main LFS-findutils patch.  If not...well, the -D_GNU_SOURCE 
bit isn't really necessary for x86.
