arrhh i don't think glibc2.3 is binary compatible with 2.2, everything 
keeps segfaulting. Thought I got around it, but no :( Think the only way 
around it is to build the /static directory from a glibc2.3 environment. 
I am only on a 56k so i cant try redhat 8, too big to download. So for 
now i giving up, until the next time ;)
