But I could write a mini-howto on how to upgrade from RedHat 7.1's glibc
to RedHat > 7.1's glibc--

which is a prerequisite for upgrading to PLD on any architecture.  If I
can remember how to do it, that is.  It was a while back and my
..bash_history is now clean.  I'm also building my kernel in another
session, so the list of things that I'm willing to do is a little smaller.

But I can see if I can't reconstruct it.
