Is it possible to install glibc 2.1.3 with LFS 3.3?

I am using LFS 3.3 as basis for building an Oracle Database server. The database installation requieres glibc 2.1.3 to function correctly. I used LFS 3.3 as basis for the Oracle installation but comes with glibc 2.2.5. If i try to replace the version with 2.1.3 i get the following error:

-: AWK=gawk /bin/sh 'intro.texi errno.texi memory.texi ctype.texi string.texi charset.texi locale.texi message.texi search.texi pattern.texi io.texi stdio.texi llio.texi filesys.texi pipe.texi socket.texi terminal.texi math.texi arith.texi time.texi setjmp.texi signal.texi startup.texi process.texi job.texi nss.texi users.texi sysinfo.texi conf.texi' '../crypt/crypt.texi ./linuxthreads/linuxthreads.texi' 'lang.texi header.texi install.texi maint.texi contrib.texi'

I: Log file stored in "/root/.nALFS/packages/glibc-2.1.3.log".

E: Execution failed (2).

Am i braking other dependencies here or is glibc 2.1.3 depending on things that are now longer available in LFS 3.3? Do i simply need to use an older version of LFS?
Thank you for your help,
