Your not kidding, 

I have to me at least a nasty error in g++  whislt running make -k check on the gcc-3.3.1 build. I left the pc on overnight with the terminal window open in the LFS root enviroment, so  i have just chroot back into the LFS enviroment in case the enviroment may have become unstable. hopefully this will work! i have thrown a post out on linuxquestions.org so i won't re-issue the post here. I may if i get no replies of course i have done a search on google and LFS but so far have only found one fix where the user in question just run the test several times and then the error cleared.  I think he must have loads of time available to him :-).

Thanks for the welcome Tony,
