DIY Debian Glibc configure.

Hey folks, I'm currently attempting to build my own Linux from scratch (following the Linux From Scratch book). Everything is going lovely until I try to configure Glibc-2.5.1 using the following command:

../glibc-2.5.1/configure --prefix=/tools --disable-profile --enable-add-ons --enable-kernel=2.6.0 --with-binutils=/tools/bin --without-gd --with-headers=/tools/include --without-selinux

I don't recieve any errors, it just keeps looping and repeating:

checking build system type... (cached) i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking host system type... (cached) i686-pc-linux-gnu
configure: running configure fragment for add-on nptl
configure: running configure fragment for add-on wctype

I've left it running for two hours, just in case it was doing what it was supposed to do. After the CTRL+C, there is a conf.log and a confdefs.h.

Am I doing somethin wrong or does life just suck? :-P
Any help appreciated.

I've been keeping it running, just incase and i recently got:

Glibc-2.5.1/wctype/configure: fork: cannot allocate memory
Glibc-2.5.1/wctype/configure: fork: cannot allocate memory

It's still running.


It's finished running. Turns out it takes over 3 hours to complete.
