Glibc 2.2.3

I've no problems with anything in the LFS book.  That may be because for 
a change I used the default compiler optimization flags.

As for stuff not in the book, I've only had two problems:

ProFTPD needs the -std=gnu89 flag to compile like the 2.95.x compilers 
instead of like an ISO compliant compiler.  What it does specifically for 
ProFTPD is not use the printf macro.  When I finish getting the machine 
setup, I'm going to go back and actually fix the code by moving the 
#ifdef statements out of the printf call.

Zlib doesn't like the -march=i586 flag for some reason.  Says it can't 
find the functions in match.S when it's trying to link the test programs. 
 Another I'm going to come back to look at later.  Probably just 
incorrect reference name format.
