I tried building glibc 2.2 (just released today on but
when building with the original compiler (Red Hat August release) I had
compile errors with sysdeps/ia64/fpu/s_isnanl.S - nat, qnan and snan
weren't defined.  The latest snapshot seems to define these, but crash
a lot.  Is there something in the middle you'd recommend?
