Hmmm, is that only with 2.3.2 current release? Must admit the only 
glibc's I've built with 3.3 have been CVS... will take a look at the 
source and see if its been changed...

It comes down to the host glibc version, we have to take care of those 
coming from older pre 2.3 systems where gcc-3.3 build barfs (unless you 
fix the pre 2.3 headers first :-/ )

Will have a look and see if a neater solution exists, but I'm not 
counting on it :-/
