Description Travis Tilley (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2003-06-06 12:04:41 UTC
The following patch allows glibc 2.3.1 and 2.3.2 both to compile using gcc 3.3, which otherwise 
would refuse to do so.

mentioned this on irc after the day of the accidental unmasking of glibc 2.3.2. adding drobbins to cc.

I dont know if there is any reason to stick with glibc 2.3.1 on amd64 but this at least allows it to compile with gcc 3.3. it is apparently the same patch used currently for glibc 2.3.2, only without patching the copyright notice to add the year 2003 (eh?).
Comment 3 Martin Schlemmer (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2003-08-02 08:58:57 UTC
I rather have this as a wontfix.  If you need to use gcc-3.3, then rather
use glibc-2.3.2.
