 I don't know what version of libc is in Suse-9.0, which I think you
said you were using, but this sounds like another "too new" host.  I
could be completely off the mark here (wouldn't be the first time), but
I think you might be trying to build glibc-2.3.2 on a glibc-2.3.3 host.

 What versions of glibc, gcc, and binutils are you using ? (ldd
--version, gcc --version, ld -v)  These are going to determine "how far
back" you can go.

 das eine Mal als Tragödie, das andere Mal als Farce
