I started making a LFS again, after I let it sleep some time. As I had
some experience with uClibc, I wanted to make LFS build itself with a
makefile. So I started building the makefiles, and went from package to
package. I came to glibc make check, and fell on my nose. I had no user
lfs, but a george, and I made it as george. I think george is as good as
lfs. Nevertheless, I missed some pages before the first package. I did
not set set +h and LC_ALL. First the PATH wasn' t set right, what I
corrected at once. Now I have a user lfs, start a shell script to set
the environment variables, and than I start the makefile.

My shell is the bash.

I used linuxconf for it. I do this every time I start the makefile.

und dann
