What are you talking about!?

The ONLY mentions of 2.2.5 in the entire document are, unless you want
to say mozilla cannot search:
We started from a glibc-2.2.5/gcc-2.95.3 based host to ensure any
glitches were
caught early. The versions of the toolchain packages used in testing were
binutils-2.13.2, gcc-3.2.1 and glibc-2.3.1. The main test platform was
their C libraries hence this test is not always expected to pass. The 26
unexpected passes for libstdc++ are due to the use of "--enable-clocale=gnu"

They never mention they use 2.2.5, they install FROM a host with 2.2.5.
