Further? I am running an installed PLFS doing/done *many* BLFS installs
all day today (but not coreutils again) and have seen no instances of
this problem. Gcc 3.2.3, glibc 2.3.2, binutils If the problem
only in making coreutils? I still have many packages to do yet, so I'll
keep an eye open for any hint of a problem.
