help needed with #213474 (glibc issue?)


fam (of which I am the maintainer) stopped working properly on PPC (see
the bug report from the subject).  I suspect this has something to do
with the way glibc handles SIGRT* signals.  As of libc6 2.3.1 I head to
link fam against -lrt and -lpthread for those signals to work, and it
did work.  Now the new and broken revision of fam is compiled against
libc6 2.3.2 so I am wondering if it could have been a change in the
behaviour of SIGRT* and the librt and libpthread libraries on powerpc
that introduced this breakage.  Maybe it could relate to #207806, but I
do not exactly know.  Is there a glibc maintainer/hacker who could
clarify this for me, please?

Thanks in advance for your help,
