It's only broken with the latest gcc which adds some checks which weren't there before. I have glibc-2.3.2-r1 installed on my alpha and was quite surprised when it wouldn't rebuild...! ;-)

Yeah, it would be great to get the latest glibc on alpha. Richard Henderson has been doing a lot of work on it. I'll see what I can do about 2.3.2-r6. On a related note, anybody know what you have to do to make nptl work? What breaks when you enable it? Anything? Aron
