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?
