Question Problems building glibc-2.3.2

Has anyone had any success building glibc-2.3.2 on a stock install of Red Hat 9.0 or Mandrake 9.1 ?

When I run 'make', it proceeds successfully until it gets to the source sub-directory ../glibc-2.3.2/string. Once there it builds a few files and then gets into an infinite loop where it keeps re-entering the same directory. I've tried the build both as root and as user.

I opened a PR at the official GNU bugs web site but was closed as a local environment problem on my side without any tips on how to solve the problem. I suspect it could be some sort of compiler flag problem but have no idea what to set.

One of many configure option settings I used:

../glibc-2.3.2/configure --prefix=/root/glibc232bld --disable-profile --enable-add-ons=linuxthreads --with-headers=/usr/src/linux/include --with-binutils=/usr/bin

Installed tools used for compilation:
gcc 3.2.2
make 3.8
perl 5.8.0
autoconf 2.13
awk 3.1.1
sed 4.0.3
gettext 0.11.5
texinfo 4.3

thanks in advance
