From an early look, it looks like the glibc-2.6.1 is a botched release, 
reminding me of 2.3.3.

The configparms file doesn't work with 'build-programs=no', 
and --enable-omitfp adds extra test suite errors which are unusual 
(--enable-omitfp normally does not add test suite errors).

I'm more comfortable with glibc-2.5.x for the moment. Maybe a glibc-2.6.2 will 
come out with the fixes. When a Glibc release doesn't pass tests under ideal 
conditions it's a good sign to stay away from it.
