Unhappy binutils-2.16.1 taking forever to install


hi
um, i just started an lfs have hit a few probelms been able to figure most of them out except when i go to make install or make binutils it take a really long time. i read that it would take around 40 minutes or so, but what i thought was weird that it is displaying the same output on the screen in a continuous loop and it isnt changing sould i be worried or not?
um this computer im doin it on is kinda old like a 1.3 celeron with 300 mb ram just FYI

if any one has any insight into why this is happening or if this is normal please post me a reply

Please describe your setup. Are you doing this using the LFS disk (if so, I can't help), however if you are doing this in a separate area on your system them maybe I can lend assistance.

I have not built an LFS system, but I have successfully built a CLFS system which should be quite similar.
