Oops. I'm running r2 and there was a security alert in April
for glibc 2.1.3-x, for some x < 17. I guess I should have mentioned
that earlier :-(.
if you have to ask these questions i think you should not be compiling
Perhaps, but then I would not be able to do some of the things that
I do want to. Besides, it is helpful to my learning more about Linux.
Mostly, I would like to have some idea about how much risk I am taking.
The documentation in my /usr/doc/ is not particularly helpful as it
merely points to the existence of conflict about policy, and it is six
months old. If there is a policy, I do want to know, so I know if I
am about to break policy, before I break it.
I do know that since I plan to recompile everything else as well, I
don't expect too many strange header mismatch errors.
