For some reason, you are still using your host's glibc instead of the
new one you built in /tools. See where it says /lib/, ... At
that point, you should be using the in /tools/lib. Something
has gone wrong in your toolchain adjustment in Ch. 5.7, I think.

I believe the problem is that you're still using the binutils ld with
the old LIB_PATH. What's the result of this command?

$ /tools/bin/ld --verbose | grep SEARCH_DIR

I get

SEARCH_DIR("/tools/i686-pc-linux-gnu/lib"); SEARCH_DIR("/tools/lib");
