LFS 6.5 error in building glibc-2.10.1

Well, I can't compile glibc with LFS live cd 6.5.

The first attempt I got this after >6hrs compiling (on via Epia Nehemiah 1GHZ)

stat.o.dt -MT /mnt/lfs/sources/glibc-build/io/stat.o
stat.c:50: error: redefinition of '__stat'
../include/sys/stat.h:22: note: previous definition of '__stat' was here
make[2]: *** [/mnt/lfs/sources/glibc-build/io/stat.o] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/mnt/lfs/sources/glibc-2.10.1/io'
make[1]: *** [io/subdir_lib] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/mnt/lfs/sources/glibc-2.10.1'
make: *** [all] Error 2
so I was looking for something wrong with sources.cache or mtune or stune (no idea what it is)

Then I saw

case `uname -m` in
  i?86) echo "CFLAGS += -march=i486 -mtune=native" > configparms ;;
En replaced" i?386" with "i486" Maybe that was the mistake? But now I'm thinking the questionmark is more a wildcard than a typo.

So I recompiled with i486 and got this error:

sed -e 's/#.*$//' -e '/^[       ]*$/d' ../abi-tags | \
        while read conf tagos tagver; do \
          test `expr 'i686-pc-linux-gnu' \
                     : "$conf"` != 0 || continue; \
          ( echo "$tagos" | \
            sed -e 's/[^0-9xXa-fA-F     ]//' \
                -e 's/^/#define __ABI_TAG_OS /'; \
            echo "#ifndef __ABI_TAG_VERSION"; \
            echo "$tagver" | \
            sed -e 's/[^0-9xXa-fA-F]/ /g' -e 's/ *$//' \
              -e 's/ /,/g' -e 's/^/# define __ABI_TAG_VERSION /'; \
            echo "#endif" ) > /mnt/lfs/sources/glibc-build/csu/; \
if test -r /mnt/lfs/sources/glibc-build/csu/; then mv -f /mnt/lfs/sources/glibc-build/csu/ /mnt/lfs/sources/glibc-build/csu/abi-tag.h; \
        else echo >&2 'This configuration not matched in ../abi-tags'; exit 1; fi
make[2]: Map '/mnt/lfs/sources/glibc-2.10.1/csu' wordt verlaten
make[1]: *** [csu/subdir_lib] Fout 2
make[1]: Map '/mnt/lfs/sources/glibc-2.10.1' wordt verlaten
make: *** [all] Fout 2
root [ /mnt/lfs/sources/glibc-build ]#
That wasn't the solution so I did a "make distclean" and recompiled with i386 and i686 just to try.

If I follow the script now (with i?86) every time it's giving the same error?

I had this same problem. Just run the following when in the glibc-build directory before running configure:

echo "libc_cv_gnu89_inline=yes" >> config.cache
Hope this helps!

Cool I know I am reviving the first caveman with this 1st post but....

I was running into this same error on my 1st LFS build, V. 6.7, Hosted from Ubuntu 10.10, After 2+ hours searching the internet, and scouring all pages I could, and making up dances to hopefully fix it...

I finally did, I had to reboot, clean start, and pick up from the beginning of Chapter 6, I logged into root and linked LFS and all that old stuff, then just copy and pasted everything, even redid the installs, and it worked, 1st try.

Glad to know I got it working... I think that the thing I had going wrong was that after runnin the CHROOT, I read it wrong and restarted my entire terminal? I am unsure but that seems right to me.

I could find no definitive answers on this issue, and figured if someone else encounters this, I will save them some trouble hopefully! Good luck to all =]
