One additional caveat on this: AFAIK, there are no official tarballs. 
I've used and updated to latest versions with no ill-affects previously 
following the security exploits of a few months ago. I've now switched 
back to GLibC-2.12.2 proper in a multi-lib environment. One side affect 
of generating our own tarball is that patching could be eliminated. 
Really no gain or loss here, so it probably just goes by the wayside.
