Glibc error

Everything went smoothly until /***/LFS-BOOK-6.0-HTML/chapter06/glibc.html

error given below:
../glibc-2.3.4-20040701/configure --prefix=/usr \

> --with-__thread --enable-kernel=2.6.0 --without-cvs \

My host environment:

[alex@localhost ~]$ gcc -v
Reading specs from /usr/lib/gcc/i386-redhat-linux/3.4.3/specs
Configured with: ../configure --prefix=/usr --mandir=/usr/share/man --infodir=/usr/share/info --enable-shared --enable-threads=posix --disable-checking --with-system-zlib --enable-__cxa_atexit --disable-libunwind-exceptions --enable-java-awt=gtk --host=i386-redhat-linux
Thread model: posix
gcc version 3.4.3 20041212 (Red Hat 3.4.3-9.EL4)

And run /mnt/lfs/tools/bin/gcc -v(same as g++ -v ) ,It listed like this:

[alex@localhost /mnt/lfs/tools/bin]$ ./gcc -v
Reading specs from /mnt/lfs/tools/bin/../lib/gcc/i686-pc-linux-gnu/3.4.1/specs
Configured with: ../gcc-3.4.1/configure --prefix=/tools --libexecdir=/tools/lib --with-local-prefix=/tools --disable-nls --enable-shared --enable-languages=c : (reconfigured) ../gcc-3.4.1/configure --prefix=/tools --libexecdir=/tools/lib --with-local-prefix=/tools --enable-clocale=gnu --enable-shared --enable-threads=posix --enable-__cxa_atexit --enable-languages=c,c++ --disable-libstdcxx-pch
Thread model: posix
gcc version 3.4.1

Someone got that error too,But not a right answer was given out,
