This should have been an issue with all versions before -r7. If you
dont have -r7, upgrade, and then remerge glibc.
I have updated the Changelog, and the ebuild as well with the correct
bugzilla #'s, and the Changelog now also contain the URL's to the
patches. Our gcc was patched with the first version of the atexit()
patch, which if I recall stopped working for glibc-2.2.4.
