Most of the errors suggest it is looking for GLIBC 2.0 and 2.1 procedures,
while the system has GLIBC 2.2.4 installed. I installed the compat-glibc
package which has 2.1 but including this in the LD_LIBRARY_PATH first causes
make to bail out because it requires 2.2 and apparently it gives up at the
first libc file it examines.
Maybe there is a compat-make?
If there is no way around this particular thing, perhaps your
using a later version of GLIBC will be the answer. Is there an easy way to
signal dsbuild to statically link GLIBC or will it require editing a lot of
I have no idea. This is highly not-recommended to do.
