Do you want to use glibc-1.99, or the (still beta) glibc-2.1?

Coda needs a lot of patching to work in glibc-1.99. Also, versions of egcs
older than 1.1.1 need the -fno-exceptions flag, since exceptions are

Glibc-2.1 requires quite a bit less work, and I understand egcs version
are available that fix exceptions.

I can provide you with patches or help in getting glibc-2.1 set up.
