You running this with nALFS or are you following the book manually?
Looks like you're building the current stable book too, so any support
questions should really go to lfs-support at

Just as a possibility...
Did you delete the source and build dirs of glibc from chap 5 and unpack
the tarball fresh?  You should try that, I've seen a similar problem
that was fixed when unpacking a fresh source tree.
