Make target missing?

I have been through the manual several times and am having problems trying to get the glibc-2.3.4 to install. The 'make install' always fails at this same point:

make[5]: Entering directory `/home/lfs/glibc-2.3.4/time'
make[5]: Nothing to be done for `rtld-all'.
make[5]: Leaving directory `/home/lfs/glibc-2.3.4/time'
make[4]: Leaving directory `/home/lfs/glibc-2.3.4/elf'
make[3]: *** No rule to make target `/home/lfs/glibc-2.3.4-build/dlfcn/', needed by `/home/lfs/glibc-2.3.4-build/elf/sprof'. Stop.

So far I have tried using the glibc-2.3.4-20040701 version as well as downloading the fully released glibc-2.3.4. I even tried glibc-2.3.5. And it seems to compile the previous steps (binutils, gcc-core and headers) properly.

My host system is running kernel and the host compiler is gcc-3.3.4 both meeting the requirements of LFS 6.0.

I am at a loss as to what to do. Any help would be appreciated.

I had this same problem.............and had to downgrade Glibc to version 2.3.2 and the problem went away...........I sent a bug report to the LFS people, and never got a maybe the older version will work for you also........just have to try it.
