There is an interesting configuration option that you can use with
This means that you promise not to run kernels older than X.Y.X with
this glibc image
you are building. As a bonus you'll have smaller and more efficient
glibc ( w/ o fallbacks ).
And sure, you should provide the corresponding --with-headers,
and these headers will be checked at configure time.
The amazing thing is, it is checked ( I think, even used ) also at build
So, if you run 2.2.X kernel but asked for --enable-kernel=2.4.0,
you'll receive <Kernel is too old> and 'll be aborted at min 97 ( out
of 107 build time, my case ).
It made me switch to 2.4.0-beta10 and everything went fine.
I can't remember anything like this with GNU tools in the past.
