We do pretty much exclude Glibc-2.0.x and Glibc-2.1.x systems (glibc-2.0.x 
more so than glibc-2.1.x). Any more modern Linux system comes with a 2.4 
kernel. But we can always include a note "If you can't use --bind use the 
following symlink instead".

But the problem is that a symlink doesn't work inside chroot, whereas a mount 
--bind does.
