A little more to report on...I don't know how to understand this -
As I mentioned, I repeated the whole exercise - right from setting up a new VM
with identical settings. Followed all the steps exactly, once again. And
everything is working fine for tcl-8.6.8. It is compiling even with -O2.
Now I have 2 VMs with identical settings where one fails to compile tcl-8.6.8
with -O2 and the other where it is fine. I don't know how to interpret this. I
am accepting that I might have made a mistake in the first instance, but the
failure was very subtle, undetectable and I don't know how to understand the
peculiar behavior (compiling only with -O2 optimization fails, but -O1
For now, I am going to proceed with my new VM and go rest of way through
lfs-8.2, and see if it works.
Thanks everyone for your help.
