LIBC5 is GNU libc with substantial patches for Linux. LIBC6 is GNU libc with
the Linux support merged back in to the main source thread. GNU calls these
LIBC 1 and 2. We call it LIBC6 on Linux because our version numbers didn't
follow the GNU ones.

All Linux distributions will go to LIBC6. There are no hold-outs that I know
