Actually, because of various glitches, the large number of
uncompilable packages after all these months, and the LCS's focus on
standardizing the 2.0.7t interface, I'm starting to doubt the benefits
of using glibc 2.1.

Plus our glibc2.1 debs are incompatible with all the redhat/sparc and
ultrapenguin systems already out there, which is making the ultra port

The other day, as a test, I stepped out of the chrooted glibc21
environment -- which has never worked right anyway -- and tried to
build hamm using the regular ultrapenguin glibc.  The result?  Over
500 packages built without error, including tricky ones like netstd,
all in 24 hours (it was a rather studly UltraSPARC).

Though its not a complete dist yet (a real libc6.deb is missing, and I
couldn't get the sparc X patch to patch in), it does show that using
glibc 2.0, where possible, is easier.

I'm curious if anyone has comments on this.
