Thanks for these links.

What a mess!  In my case there would be no problem because
absolutely nothing was built against the new glibc.

However, I found another solution.  I did not realize that
Gentoo offers a binary OpenOffice package.  Installing
this openoffice-bin package now gives me an OpenOffice
that starts with the new glibc update.

So the new question is why does the binary from OO/LO
fail to start while the Gentoo binary shows no problem?
AFAIK they are the same package, but the directory structures
are different.

Anyway, I'm glad to have OO running.
