Skip it. Skip the test. Especially if it has to do with some clock or timing resources in nptl.
Boot with the Live CD and use nALFS. Edit the glibc xml file (use vim from the live CD or scp the files to another machine to edit them) in both Chapter05 and Chapter06 to remove the make check (about three lines). Mount your install partition under /mnt/lfs (create the mount point before), format it, make it bootable, [EDIT: of course, format and make bootable, THEN mount it !! ;-)] copy your kernel config file to the skeleton directory under the name 'linux-kernel-config' and launch './runIt skeleton' from the nALFS directory on the CD.
Then let it cook between 3 to 5 hours. It takes 3 hours inside VmWare 5.5 on an AMD X86_64 dual core with 4 GB of RAM, and 5 hours on a 2.4 GHz Pentium 4 with 1 GB RAM.
Even though you may have Fedora, Slackware, SuSE, etc... You can still use the Live CD to compile and install LFS. I find it's a good way (not the ultimate !) to have a LFS system quickly.
When you've obtained your first LFS system, and then you start to add xorg and all that, then you can ponder how to make it a perfect build by doing all tests, and adding security, and all that. There's so much time that can be spend on only refining to your liking the build process, but first try to have a running system.
