You are assuming that the broken glibc hasn't caused any undetected
errors during building of packages.  Given that it can have odd effects
on the execution of just about any tool used during a build, I find
your optimism 100% unjustified.

Even without that consideration, you are misinformed if you think that
only i586 is broken.  The mysql failures I was seeing manifested on
x86_64 but not the other three platforms.
