That's interesting.  I used this process for both of those packages without any problem.

Be careful. I noticed that some compilations return 0 at the end while
there were compilation problems somewhere along the way (I don't remember
if it was glibc or gcc, I'm sorry). I scripted my lfs-install, and it took
a while to get that part of my software was not installed, since I totally
missed the compilation error because it scrolled away.
