This is correct. Because of this, the ppc64 Port uses glibc-2.3.4.
The current Debian package has been patched to use version 2.3.4 for the 
ppc64 port.

All patches used by the current Debian glibc which are already in 
version 2.3.4 have been dropped for this. Only about 30 patches out
of more than 100 had to be kept.

The newer glibc version works quite well so far. Two other packages 
needed a small patch to properly run with glibc-2.3.4.
