The 'install program' is a short shell script (called 
installMapleLinuxSU, which I've attached to this mail) which checks 
you've got a gui running and then launches the main binary installer 
(LinuxInstaller.bin, which I can't attach because it's bigger than my 
mail server's limit).

I've not seen any problems with the linker before. I installed both 
firefox and thunderbird as binaries and didn't have any problems. I've 
also compiled numerous packages since I finished my LFS.

I'll dig in the temporary directory now and see what I find.

Thanks for you help.
