Ok I am slightly annoyed during the next package (binutils) I also got 
errors. So I am not just going to go on.

Since I know that I can't upgrade my hosts gcc to 3.4.0 since it 
requires newer glibc which if I upgrade I will break stuff.
What version of gcc can I safely move to with my current setup of glibc 
version 2.2.5 and gcc version 2.95.3

Then I will recompile my kernel and at least get rid of the nptl errors 
when I compile glibc and hopefully the errors will disappear from 
binutils if I am using a good compile of glibc
