section 6.9 Glibc error

Hi I,m at section 6.9 Glibc 2.12.1 I have an error on make install I hope someone can help with. Up untill this I got 1 error on the test "(ignored) failure in the posix/annexc test." Thats all it reported I ran the section again from the begining same result. The error on make install is
rm -f /sources/glibc-build/elf/symlink.list 
test ! -x /sources/glibc/elf/Idconfig || LC_ALL=C LANGAGES=C \ 
/sources/glibc-build/elf/Idconfig \
CC="gcc" /usr/bin/perl scripts/ /sources/glibc-build/
usr/bin/ldd: line 126: /tmp/test-prg28022: cannot execute binary file
ldd execution failed at scripts/ line 182.
make[1]: *** [install] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory ` /sources/glibc-2.12.1'
make: *** [install] Error 2
I read the reasons for the fail in the test, NOTE 3 about mounting lfs I have followed the book 6.7.
I tried the bit in NOTE 4 TIMEOUT make -k check
Dont think theres much I can do about the 1st & 2nd note?
Any advice on the errors plz.

I seem to have over come the error by deleting glibc-build and glibc-2.12.1 again then started again 3 times now. I have got a clean build tho hope this helps other ppl

I came across the same problem. I suspect this is caused by it being practically impossible to distinguish in the PDF instructions between the digit 1 (one) and the lower case letter l (ell). If you can't cut/paste instructions, it's easy to mistype and so screw something up.

I would strongly suggest to the maintainers to use another font in the instructions where one and lower-case ell are distinct.
