Thanks a lot for your link. I have scanned the answers there 
but it seems that at least #15 has to be done using a linux
recover CD or something similar. 

In my case this is a remote server on which I have only
ssh access, and thus no option of using a CD. I think
I need a solution to replace this broken glibc with the
original one coming with RedHat 7.2, but using only basic
things I can download.

I guess what I'm trying to do is manually do what 
    rpm -Uvh -oldpackage glibc-*-2.2.4-32.i386.rpm
would accomplish. But I have no idea where to begin.


PS: Now I have noticed that qmail is generating lots of
message like :

"Incorrectly built binary which accesses errno, h_errno or 
 _res directly. Needs to be fixed."

I suppose this is related to the glibc change, although I
didn't see any dependencies preventing me to do it, and
certainly not qmail, except the weird 
'rpmlib(PartialHardlinkSets) <= 4.0.4-1', which is why I
used --nodeps in the first place.
