Yes I heard about that :)

I'll compile the amd64 binaries on a system with glibc 2.3.4. We thought
it would be fair to assume that people with that kind of hardware would
have an updated system as well.

And for the 32-bit version I'll use an old Red Hat system (7.2) with
glibc 2.2.4. Which should fix compability-issues for people with older

That should do the trick? Or am I wrong?

Ah yes forgot about that one the dreaded linker issues, glibc
I'm sure AF can tell you all about the fun with that AA.
