Well, it appears there is a serious problem with libc 4.6.27 and
earlier. Should we upgrade to libc 4.7.4 at this late date? Has
anyone used this version? If so, what have been your experiences?

I have made a copy of libc-4.7.4 publicly available, for now, in:
This version is, as Alan states, not currently a public release; it's
only available in H.J. Lu's "hidden" GCC development area on
tsx-11.mit.edu (and its mirrors, of which linux.nrao.edu is one).
H.J. has given his OK for this "pseudo-release."
