NGROUPS_MAX in sarge

I'm running into the 32 group per user limit on a server running sarge and 
kernel 2.6.  There's no NFS involved, so kernel-patch-nfs-ngroups would 
not seem to be relevant.

As far as I can tell (e.g. the thread culiminating at 
http://lists.debian.org/debian-glibc/2004/06/msg00034.html), the main 
problem at this point is the value of NGROUPS_MAX when glibc is compiled.

What's the simplest and most maintainable way to resolve this to get much 
more than 32 groups per user?  I'd really rather not recompile glibc and 
become my own glibc maintainer, but I'd also rather not move this server 
to testing/unstable.  Is there an easier workaround?  Should I start 
trying to do what I want with ACLs instead?
