As I wrote earlier I also can't believe it's a filesystem issue.

Yup, I had to change the build scripts. If I remember correctly the Debian 
package comes with "shrink-wrapped" configure.cache files so that they would 
always overwrite certain changes I made to the configure statement inside 

I think that there was a already a bug filed against the non-support of large 
files. The poster of this bug report also mentioned that you had to recompile 
it in order to get LFS.

OTOH everything I just wrote could be wrong. I'm currently working on a 
multitude of "building areas" so I could confuse something with something 
totally different. :-)
