[lfs-support] Not set up to use the correct startfiles at the 6.17 sanity check

OK; so considering even the author of the Package Users hint said it
doesn't have to be an all-or-nothing approach, I've decided to give up
just for this one package and install just gcc as the root user to
help debug this. I removed all the old source files, recompiled,
rechecked, and reinstalled as root. Unfortunately, I'm still having
the same problem. It may be helpful to note my new make check results:


And here is my new dummy.log:

To be honest, I'm not really sure why that is.

After recompiling as root it does (not sure whether it did before but
I believe it would have): "x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu"

Thanks for the tip. I've checked both my command history and my human
memory and the only changes I've made are ones related to Package
Users it seems. Any other debugging inquiries are welcome.
