glibc and PaX issue

Hi !

I have few question about PaX from grsecurity and glibc in Debian.
I have etch, with kernel 2.4.28-grsec (compiled by myself) on my
machine, and I recently ugraded glibc to 2.3.5-6.
Suddenly few applications gone insane ;P
For example:
 Cannot load /usr/lib/apache/1.3/libphp4.so into server:
 libcrypto.so.0.9.7: cannot enable executable stack as shared object
 requires: Permission denied
I tried to google but I didn't find nothing interesting. I think it's
problem with glibc and PaX from grsecurity patch. 

I hardly know how PaX is working but I think it just protects some areas
of memory that It should not in this case, or sth ;P, maybe it's glibc
problem ?.
I went to forums.grsecurity.net and found topic about that on

Installation of ,,fixed packages''[2] soloved this issue. But in my
opinion better solution is fixing it in Debian :P. It is of course
possible that I'm wrong and I've missed something (again ...) so,
please, can somebody explain my what happened ?

Thanks in advance !

Best regards,
