This is just as simple almost as installing any application package.
Just follow the build instructions.
If you need a configure/build script to get you started, let me know.

One thing: always run make check, and inspect its output.
I am currently trying to compile glibc-2.5 myself, and while it
builds fine, 'make check' fails on some tests, which at the moment,
until I have a clear understanding of the severity of the failed
tests, holds me back from running 'make inst'.
