Linux From Scratch – A Problem

My first real problem with Linux From Scratch. I’d got to the building glibc part when it failed half way through. It appears that gawk hasn’t built properly. So when in the chrooted LFS partition the glibc build process is unable to run gawk. Even when I try to run gawk from the command line it fails. It sure looks like I didn’t build it properly.
Ah ha! I’ve just checked, and file $LFS/usr/bin/gawk gives me ‘dynamically linked’. Oops I did build it wrongly.
OK gonna step back and try to fix it.
