I'm not sure it will work.  I may have to force detection of it, but
that's not a problem (seems that it assumes that Linux systems don't have
it).  I just wanted to be sure it was safe to do so and let people know
about it.

Should I go ahead and compile the new glibc package with the current patch
or do we have a new one?  Any disposition yet?
