glibc build problem continued...

Hi. I've started again from scratch using the LFS 3.2 book this time
instead of the latest CVS, and the keep_chap5_and_chap6_sep hint and
I've got the same problem again when building glibc in chapter 6!
configure output again:

It seems to be the same thing again (the cpp0 not being found by cc). I've
checked the /static/usr/lib/gcc-lib/i686-pc-linux-gnu/2.95.3 directory
again and the files are all there with the proper file sizes (I think last
time I may have been reading the zeros from the uid/gid bits.. *ahem* :o).

Has anyone out there got the keep hint to work with LFS 3.2? Anyone know
what I'm doing wrong? I'm sure I did chapter 5 right this time as I c&pd
the commands from the book, setting $LFS to /mnt/lfs/static.

Mark (slightly frustrated :o)
