error with glib 2.3.3 -chapter 6

I'm up to:

and when I do this:

../glibc-2.3.3-lfs-5.1/configure --prefix=/usr \
--disable-profile --enable-add-ons=linuxthreads \
--libexecdir=/usr/lib --with-headers=/usr/include \

I get this:
checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu

checking sysdep dirs... sysdeps/i386/elf linuxthreads/sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/i386 linuxthreads/sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux linuxthreads/sysdeps/pthread sysdeps/pthread linuxthreads/sysdeps/unix/sysv linuxthreads/sysdeps/unix linuxthreads/sysdeps/i386/i686 linuxthreads/sysdeps/i386 sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/i386 sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux sysdeps/gnu sysdeps/unix/common sysdeps/unix/mman sysdeps/unix/inet sysdeps/unix/sysv/i386 sysdeps/unix/sysv sysdeps/unix/i386 sysdeps/unix sysdeps/posix sysdeps/i386/i686/fpu sysdeps/i386/i686 sysdeps/i386/i486 sysdeps/i386/fpu sysdeps/i386 sysdeps/wordsize-32 sysdeps/ieee754/ldbl-96 sysdeps/ieee754/dbl-64 sysdeps/ieee754/flt-32 sysdeps/ieee754 sysdeps/generic/elf sysdeps/generic
