Forgive me if I am being dense. I see this in
/usr/src/make-3.79.1/config.log :

configure:4132: checking for getloadavg in -lutil
configure:4177: checking for getloadavg in -lgetloadavg
configure:4223: checking for getloadavg

Since I am not a Linux guru, this not terribly enlightening for me :-(

I have found getloadavg.c in /usr/src/glibc-2.2.1/. Do I need to recompile
all of glibc? Any ideas why it failed to be installed the first time?
