I have never seen any problems so far with my glibc-2.2 installation and
libnss. The problems I described don't only apply when you have glibc-2.0 on
the host and glibc-2.2 on LFS. The exact same things happen when you have
glibc-2.0 on the host and glibc-2.1 on LFS. So whether Glibc-2.2 is missing
something in regard of the nss files or not, it doens't matter, it won't
solve the problem.
But now I do wonder what's in that nss_db-2.2.tar.gz package. I'll have to
try to remember this and investigate it some day.
by the way, berkely db's official site is http://www.sleepycat.com
