0. Prepare virtual system to be used for a build environment

1. Start with recent Owl-current system downloaded from
ftp://ftp.ru.openwall.com/pub/Owl/current/iso/

2. Update the kernel to recent 2.6.32-ovz from
ftp://ftp.openvz.org/kernel/branches/rhel6-2.6.32/
(not necessary, but I recommend doing that).

3. Set up basic build environment in your home directory:
mkdir -p ~/RPM/{BUILD,ROOT,RPMS,SOURCES,SPECS,SRPMS,tmp}
cat > ~/.rpmmacros << __RPMMACROS_EOF__
%_topdir	%homedir/RPM
%_tmppath	%homedir/RPM/tmp
%buildroot	%homedir/RPM/ROOT/%name-%version-%release
__RPMMACROS_EOF__

4. Build the new glibc using `rpmbuild`

5. If everything is ok, update the glibc locally with `rpm -U`

6. Restart the build system and check whether it boots ok.

7. Rebuild the new glibc package again

8. Try to check it - it most likely should pass the check.

There could be any.

Neither of there are supported by our team officially (yet).
