I've been running glibc-2.3.5 fine since April, save for the time I was
running 2.3.5-20050421, the snapshot with gcc-4.x fixes. (The snapshot
worked in amd64 mode, compiled with gcc4 of course, but the x86 ABI
version failed, causing further gcc/glibc/sandbox emerge failures because
they have multilib elements and failed during the 32-bit configure step
due to being unable to load a library, presumably glibc, when testing for
a working (32-bit) gcc-compiler. After I figured out that was the
problem, I simply returned to the normal 2.3.5 version, compiled with
gcc-3.4.x since it didn't have the gcc4 patches applied.)
