How are you building this? None of those paths look right at all. I
have no idea why it's trying to install to linux/limits.h.

The /mnt/lfs/tools/glibc-build/../include/linux/limits.h looks really
strange. Is there any reason why you have glibc-build in /tools?
Where's the glibc-2.5 source directory?
