  Not a chance of me testing this at the moment :-( My x86_64 multilib is 
still stuck in bclfs (glib-2-32, FWIW), my powerpc64 multilib build is 
trying to follow the ppc book (with the obvious multilib changes and 
trying without -D_GNU_SOURCE for patch) and adding further variations 
will only confuse me.

  When I can get a *reliable* desktop build, I'll be back in business to 
test changes.  But, I'm  less than clear how we are supposed to prove 
that this is helping - linuxthreads is no longer an option with the 
glibc we're now using, so even if we wanted to we can't build the 
initial glibc like that, and nobody has so far reported this problem 
with the versions in the book.

  I'm only an editor, I'm not a toolchain expert.
