The changes have been done in the SVN for the experimental version of
the glibc, so they will appear with the next upload, probably in the
next few days.
The solution is to use the new hwcap function of ldconfig introduced in
glibc 2.4, so the changes will only appear for etch + 1. This is not
easily backportable to etch, anyway the glibc in etch is now frozen.
