I am actually re-running the steps for glibc now, so maybe I will have more
information to help troubleshoot.  I deleted the extracted folder,
re-extracted from the source archive, and closely followed the steps in the
chapter.  I configured without an issue and I am now running 'make'.  I did
not pipe the output to a log file, unfortunately, but I will make sure I
capture the tail of the make output.  It should be done in about 8 or 9
hours.
