Sorry for not replying more quickly.

It was quite a while ago that I "fixed" errors by turning off NTP
anyway.  It might not be accurate.  To cut to the chase, I would move
on.  This is a fairly common failure that is affected by the host
environment according to this bug:

If you want, keep the source and build directory for glibc.  After you
finish building lfs and boot it up, run make check again and see if
the results are the same.

I don't know.  In another google hit on the libc-alpha mailing list,
Greg Shafer brought up how running the tests on a kernel compiled with
a recent gcc may clear up nptl test failures.

Out of curiousity, could you answer a couple questions?

1. What is your host environment?  Distro?  Kernel version?

2.  If you still have the build directory, what is the error shown in
/sources/glibc-build/nptl/tst-clock2.out?  Presumably, it will say
"clock_gettime round 0 failed".
