If that were to be done it would say 'glibc 2.0' and not 'debian 2.1' since
the problems, with for example, gzip are not related to just debian, but to
any glibc-2.0 based system (even lfs systems so it's not that it's due to
patched up Glibc libraries). Then there's this to be said: what if you don't
know (for sure) which Glibc version you have on your distribution. It will
still make you wonder ;)
But yes it probably would save people time by reading 'known problems' before
attempting to compile something.
