I am trying to follow the LFS HOWTO on the Linux Documentation Project
site and ran into the following error when trying to compile diffutils

[root at straylight]: /mnt/lfs/usr/src/diffutils-2.7 # make -e LDFLAGS=-static
gcc -o diff -g -O -static diff.o analyze.o cmpbuf.o dir.o io.o util.o context.o
ed.o ifdef.o normal.o side.o fnmatch.o getopt.o getopt1.o regex.o version.o
/usr/lib/libc.a(regex.o): In function `init_syntax_once':
/tmp/glibc-2.1.2/posix/regex.c:180: multiple definition of `re_max_failures'
regex.o:/mnt/lfs/usr/src/diffutils-2.7/regex.c:112: first defined here
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [diff] Error 1

Is there a step I am missing in order to compile difutils with static

My base linux system is Slackware 7.0, BTW.
