i don't think it's libc. i thought that at first too. see my earlier
outlined upgrade where i'm using the new libc and friends, but stop
short of 'make build' cause something else isn't right. something
installing in /usr/libdata/lint.

if you could follow that same set of instructions and then NOT 'make
build at the end, you'll still have a functioning system with partially
new libs, etc.
