You might also consider having a hybrid system based on Redhat
4.2 with both libraries libc5 and libc6. Two approaches are
possible. I choose to compile the libraries from sources for
one of my Linux boxes and I am very pleased to have a system
which runs both types of applications and let me compile
either libc5 or libc6 based programs without messing with
Makefiles. I just rotate either LIBC6 or LIBC5 to the top of my
PATH and then 'make' my programs either way.
