Yeah, I was in the same situation...looked back over the archives and
someone said that upgrading libc to would do the trick. I
got the binary upgrade for 5.4.13 off of sunsite:/pub/Linux/GCC (the one I
compiled didn't work at all) and, believe it or not, it did fix the
problem. I suspect that it is a new feature in the 5.4.13 include files.
