Yes, I understand the problem.

a) seems like a bug in the linker to me. This should fail to link.
b) when you bump the libc version, you have to now version /usr/include,
and you need to link things.
If you think about bumping libc as being very similar to moving from a.out
to elf, then the sets of solutions to this are clear.
