Error on make install when compiling tcl8.5.7

Hi guys,

After compiling some packages successful on my first attempt with LFS, I'm confronted with the next problematic one. I've been looking through the config.log but since I'm completely new at this have no clue at what I'm looking . The configure command returns no error and neither does the make command. But when I enter the make install command I get the following:
root@eric-desktop:/mnt/lfs/sources/tcl8.5.7/unix# make install
Installing to /tools/lib/
Installing tclsh as /tools/bin/tclsh8.5
Installing to /tools/lib/
Installing libtclstub8.5.a to /tools/lib/
Installing message catalogs
Segmentation fault
make: *** [install-msgs] Error 139

I've followed the instructions from the LFS book to the letter, when failing even retraced what was typical in the README but with the same result.

I'm attaching config log also. Could you please help out someone who wants to learn? As I'm learning, would the helping hand please indicate where the error is traced and what he/she looked for, so I can try to resolve (or get closer to a solution)?

Kind regards,

How much as I would like to know why this is failing (I'm sure it has to do with my host system), I'm to eager to continue. So I booted from the LFS live cd and am continuing from there. If I encounter any problems now then at least I'll know it's not my host system

Kind regards,

Could be a problem with stack space, try setting ulimit to unlimited or ustack to unlimited. Had similar problem on Fedora compiling Ruby and TCL/TK
