FORTIFY_SOURCE is by far not the only thing that might make your binaries require a "new" glibc. If you want to run against an old glibc, you should build against such an old glibc. Example: NPTL threads. There are countless other examples of things that make your app require a newer glibc *IF* you build against a new glibc. If you don't want that.. don't do that then.
