problems with glibc-2.2.5

No, I still get the same error.  I checked my env settings using "printenv" and found that my C compiler had the following settings cc= gcc -s.  I checked help on gcc but was unable to find the -s extention mentioned in the help file.  I'll check the man page when I get the chance.  

Any other ideas as to what may be causing this?? :)
