Subject: Re: gcc 4.6.1

I send some owl patches from my gentoo. I'm still using glibc-2.12 and
not everything can be immediately transferred to glibc-2.14. I added
patches from gentoo-hardened. Maybe you are interested. The file
glibc_patches_spec is a piece of code from the installation ebuild -
you can see with patches works with glibc-2.14.

You will probably have to update the perl (>=5.10) to be able to use
the glibc-2.14.

best regards,
daniel cegielka
