Am not sure if it's a patch issue. In fact all the HLFS builds I have done
output 'Illegal instruction' instead of the 'Aborted' line. I thought it was
the host OS (Slackware 11.0 , Slackware 12.0) so I changed to LFS(6.3) as
the host and I get the same 'Illegal instruction' instead of 'Aborted'. (I
want to try Debian this weekend)

As for patches I added a couple of uclibc patches from the buildroot project
but the 'Illegal instruction' remains. Since my HLFS builds are working
'perfectly' ( I even got carried away and added dpkg tools, X-server,
firefox and Enlightenment, etc ) I figured this was not a problem. 

I also get the 'Illegal instruction' line for the butterfly toolchain SSP

Someone please school me on this!
