Bug#221855: ld.so: Incorrectly built binary which accesses errno or h_errno directly.

Package: libc6
Version: 2.3.2.ds1-10
Severity: important
Tags: sid


We use veritas netbackup executive and unfortunately running with
version 2.3.2.ds1-10 of the libc6 package is causing us significant

The veritas software is poorly written, and as a result, we get the
error message mentioned in the subject line written to stderr every time
one of the veritas programs is run.

The veritas netbackup management software sees this error message (one
it is not expecting) and assumes something horrible has happened and
aborts the backup for that host. This is plainly undesirable.

Looking at " glibc23-errno-hack.dpatch " in the debian/patches directory
of the source, I can see no way to suppress this warning message.
Unfortunately this means that currently we can't backup a whole pile of

Is there any way to suppress the message which I haven't spotted?
