Glibc 2.2 _stable_

Okay, here we go--I've searched the lfs mail archives for this problem,
and found it.  What I didn't find was the solution.  This problem rears
its ugly, ugly head when attempting to install gcc-2.95.2 on a system
with glibc-2.2.  I've done the static compiles of both without error,
however now I'm in the chroot environment and at the point with gcc
where you do "make bootstrap" and I'm getting THIS:
.../../../gcc-2.95.2/libio/ In method `struct streampos
indirectbuf::seekoff(long long int, ios::seek_dir, int = 3)':
.../../../gcc-2.95.2/libio/ `struct streampos' used where
a `inst' was expected
.../../../gcc-2.95.2/libio/ `struct streampos' used where
a `int' was expected
.../../../gcc-2.95.2/libio/ `struct streampos' used where
a `int' was expected
.../../../gcc-2................okay, i think you get the idea.  It goes
on and on like that until the familiar:
make[2]: *** [indstream.o] Error 1
Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.  The full slew of error output is in a
mail message in the lfsapps archive (from llhorian at, subject
" this also glibc?").  Now, the GNU C Libraries v2.2 are
_stable_ at this point in time (well, according to freshmeat at least). 
In the mailing list archives, the common reason for this problem not
being resolved was the fact that at the time the glibc libraries that
were causing this problem were not stable, but now they are.  Please
please please help me.  I think this falls under the heading of "when
{insert just-recently-beta version of some software here} is stable,
we'll support it".  The Glibc 2.2 libraries are stable, and i'm using a
stable gcc-2.95.2, so please please pretty please oh for the love of god
please for the sake of all that is good please help me!
