No need to install Gcc on Slack7 (i've done several boxes without trouble)

>(2) installed Textutils with
># ./configure --disable-nls
># make -e LDFLAGS=-static

Looks fine so far...

That problem was one that was found in 2.3.2, it's the kernel's header files
that are not setup right. a 'make dep' (with a .config file) in the
chroot'ed environment should fix that.

You may want to read 2.3.5b and check the changes.
