This is not a problem.  ELF is a format for executables.  It does not have
anything to do with the C library version.  It's sort of like Texaco
selling fuel.  You need to use it in a gasoline engine (as opposed to
Diesel for example), but it doesn't matter if you have a '99 Corvette or a
'78 Pinto. :}
