*WHAM* glibc *WHAM* 2.1 *WHAM* is *WHAM* not *WHAM* libc *WHAM* 6.1
*WHAM*. As an alpha person, you should know this.
 Sorry to get out the ClueSledgehammer(tm), but I have mentioned
this several times before. glibc 2.1 makes entensive use of ELF
symbol versioning to preserve binary compatibility, I am running a
glibc 2.1 system as we speak, other than the libc, it is an entirely
potato system, though it looks like I will have to recompile ncurses
in order to link new programs with it.
 alpha uses a soname of 6.1 for glibc 2.0 and later for historical reasons
