They aren't. /static/bin will still be in your $PATH and even if you change 
your PATH variable to remove /static/bin there is still bash's internal path 
hash that should be removed by running 'hash -r'

Not doing this will cause seg faults if your host distro was glibc-2.2.x 
based. I myself had no problems actually building glibc the second time, I 
just had problems re-entering chroot with the original commands.

It wasn't clear from the output I saw, did you run 'make install' already? If 
so, parts of the 2nd Glibc might be installed already without the patch which 
will cause some /static/bin/ programs to fail (with segmentation faults) if 
they have been compiled on the host system that uses glibc-2.2.x
