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.
