Well, I *just* compiled libc on one of my machines, and unless it's lying
to me, it worked just fine.  This does not surprise me.

Of course, it's clear why you're losing.  To refresh your memory:

   For what it's worth, I have a shell script suite which takes, as input,
   the output of the nightly CVS run, and generates a list of files to
   retrieve via anonymous FTP.

That is a *very* bad idea.  Do *not* do it.  Should the CVS update
happen to be aborted for any reason, you will miss some of the files
that have been updated.
