Well, I was hoping to have a general solution because that version of
glibc2 is still going to be used for a while.  I have systems that will
stay at potato until about a month after woody has been released.
Others must be in the same position.  I know that I could go trolling
through the headers but I'd prefer a documented solution to a cobbled

BTW, the reason that I need this is to get openldap 2 to run on i386.
It took me about two hours to figure out that it was including the
headers for db2.4 (in glibc2) while using the library from db2.7.
The error looks like:
slapadd: ldbm_db_errcall(): ==> DB_DUPSORT requires DB_DUP
slapadd: Could not open/create id2entry.dbb
