I don't think this is the problem. If the glibc version was too old you'd get
a dynamic linker error, not a segmentation fault.
To fix this in libtool, you'd need to make a patch that actually tests for the
version of libc with the bug and behaves appropriately. Just removing support
for glibc 2.1 is apparently not acceptable to the libtool maintainers. This is
something I've been meaning to do for a while, but never actually got to.
