I'm not sure that follows.  Mightn't it be something in the glibc
configure?  It seems it had the opportunity to discover that stack
protector option would fail, but tried to compile it anyway.

Is there some good reason I shouldn't continue with 6.6 now?  Isn't
this glibc good to go?  One capability my package manager has is to
explode the tarballs I make of the installed files of the packages
I make at the end of my build scripts, then compare the files with
what's currently in the system, looking for changes.  I suppose I
could run that on the "first pass" tarball.  I'd expect there to be
changes in the nscd files, but the rest to pass.  I'd need cmp, IIRC.
Maybe I'll have to wait a bit.

Is there some difficulty coming up I haven't gotten to yet? ;-)
