	I have been trying to build glibc 970927, 970928 and 971001,
all of them with identical results: nothing works.

	Appart from minor compilation problems, easily solved, the
resulted dynamic libraries don't work.  They always give me
'Segmentation falult'.  I'm still working on it...

	Hmm... `ldd' says they are linked against libc5, but that's
alsa what it says regarding the libraries in libc6_2.0.90-970629-1a,
and I think it's a bug in ldd. Can anyone confirm this?

	BTW, Has anyone have any success building any other glibc?

	I'm also working on porting `strace', and I think it's not as
difficult as it seems... and I think that will be very useful.

	Well, I did that a long time ago, when there wasn't even libc5
for the Sparc (cross-compiling from i386), and all the steps to do
were explained in vger.rutgers.edu:/pub/linux/Sparc.  I think they are
still there, and they could help you.

	Well, you'll also need all the libraries you wish to compile
your packages against (both static and shared libraries).

	Please tell us about your progress.
