Use the CVS version of the book or the pure_lfs hint. By the way, you'll have to start all over. In 4.1 version it's used the old glibc, NOT the 2.3.2 version.

By the way i just finished the lfs system using the latest set of gnu tools(gcc, binutils and glibc) and works fine. No error at compile time.

Using the CVS version of the LFS book alone is not completly ok. In the book it's used glibc(2.3.2) and still the old gcc(3.2.3) and binutils(2.13).
If i'm right you are using gcc-3.3 and binutils-2.14.

For these packages use the pure_lfs hint or the pure_lfs scripts for more info on what config and make commands you have to give them.
Some of the patches from the book, that are not designed for the latest versions of these packages, might fail doing their job. In the pure_lfs scripts you have these patches as scripts that in theory work for all versions
(ex. gcc-3.2.3-no_fixincludes.patch).

What gcc version does RH8 have?
Glibc 2.3.2 builds ok with gcc 3.2 or later. Plus the others before 3.2 are known to have problems.

When i started the lfs build i used only the pure_lfs scripts and the LFS-CVS book only for the rest of chapter 6.
Everything worked out ok(beside some tests from gcc, becouse i had some things configured wrong in my host sys).
RedHat9 on pentium4
