 In -rc2 I had my normal fails in binutils and parts of gcc (that
was with my usual "set CFLAGS, CXXFLAGS and sweep the static libs
under the carpet, also build using all CPUs" variant.  My glibc
results looked like yours.

 Anyway, I've now completed my normal desktop on x86_64 with intel
graphics.  In case there is any doubt, I am standing by everything I
tagged for 7.4 in -rc1, with the exception of two packages (elfutils
and the ati video driver) that I only build on desktops with an ATI
video chip.  From here it is looking very good.

 Thanks for your work in identifying the i686 problem.
