I haven't tried Rh 5.0 yet (or any other glibc variant), so I'm speculating
at the moment.

Isn't it possible to link as "-Bstatic" or some such ld flag to link the
library statically,  explicitly referencing the old libc?

Sybtcl users will also need to know.  

Also, I agree that we should take every opportunity to rag to 
Sybase for another Linux client release.
