I'll try building glibc, maybe later this evening. If it builds
cleanly and works on the development machine, I'll release it as an
update to the Carmen tree.

Also - just wanted to put my two cents in on George's comments about
toolchain checks and tests - I'd heartily agree with that kind of
procedure for a stable distribution that people might actually be
using for serious work, but the goal with the tree I'm building here
is mainly to get things to the point where we _can_ start building
properly - with a base that's slightly more modern than RedHat 7.2.
I'm happy with building and releasing a CVS release of glibc as long
as it doesn't make things any worse on my system.

If anyone's real work suffers a major setback because they suddenly
have to roll back a glibc upgrade on their Alpha, I think they're
using the wrong distribution at this point. :)

Almost everything so far has been using the "if it compiles, ship it"
method of quality control. I think that should change once Core 3
releases and we try building it, but I hope to be little more than a
casual observer at that point. I don't want to be a distribution
maintainer.
