Working through a rebuild and something funny happened this time...
On step 6.11, using glibc 2.3.5
and gcc 3.4.4
, I get the following error during configure:
checking for i386 TLS support... yes
running configure fragment for nptl/sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux
running configure fragment for nptl/sysdeps/pthread
checking for forced unwind support... yes
checking for C cleanup handling... no
configure: error: the compiler must support C cleanup handling
I'm a little startled to see the stipulation that we should unpack and install the linuxthreads
stuff in the first place, given my understanding that NPTL
supersedes it, but here we are...
