No, no patch, but the copy was still required.  Glad you asked about 
that.  See below....

I still haven't tested the minimum locales.  I was building all when 
testing late last night.

Just looked at my build log, and no patches.  Glad you asked about the 

[dj at name25 logs]# head -n 2 glibc-2.8-20080929-build.log
mkdir: created directory `../glibc-build'
checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu

No patches.  Bad testing.  I built glibc 3 times last night, but I guess 
I did not test that one with a full rebuild.  Now I'm not sure why I 
built it 3 times.  I know that I did do a full rebuild with the copy 
command and did not apply any patch to that point.  Please hold the 
commit for an hour.  I just cleared out /media/lfs workspace now and 
jumping back to the start of chapter 6.  Installing headers now.  Should 
take little over an hour to get back to glibc and test all changes in a 
pristine environment.
