Re: CPU specific/optimized Debian builds ?

  Just to nitpick, we don't provide an optimized libc:

glibc (2.2.2-3) unstable; urgency=low

  * Disable building of optimized libs for now. I did not forsee the
    problems involved with symbol skew between ld-linux.so.2 and the
    optmized libc.so.6. As of now, I can see no way around this.
  * Make libc6 conflict with the optimized libs for now, so we can get rid
    of them, closes: #90753, #90758, #90763, #90770, #90778, #90779
