I know what you mean. I Use a vintage 2005 686 as my workstation. (It has
really good graphics and I did a complete upgrade in 2012).
In your case though, you would only need to change to --with-glibc-version=2.10,
but I am guessing it would work with 2.11 anyway.
The good news is that the change is very early in the build and any issues would
happen early in the process.
