Just as a precision, I'm building my new CLFS x86_64 system from a
LFS-6.0 system (32-bits). That is why I am not chrooting.

I have passed a number of days trying to find where I may have deviated
from the CLFS instructions, but I couldn't find nothing. Finally, I
have decided to remove the assertion directly in the eglibc-2.10.1
sources with this patch:

diff -Naur eglibc-2.10.1.orig/elf/dynamic-link.h

-  assert (info[DT_RPATH] == NULL);
+  /* assert (info[DT_RPATH] == NULL); */
   if (info[DT_FLAGS] != NULL)

This have solved my problem, I am now able to boot and to login into my
temporary (chapter 8) CLFS system. I am no expert at glibc and dynamic
linking, and I'm not sure about the implications of this patch, altough
it is said in the elf.h source file that the DT_RPATH value is

Are there any other people out there that are booting their new
x86_64 system (not just chrooting) and experiencing the same problem?

Thank-you, Hugo V.
