Both are correct, the slak4 dist has glibc runtime libs in the dist
directly, but not compiler libs.  However, in the contrib section there is
glibc compiler libs which can be installed.

That worked..for that section, and it got much further.  Now I'm getting
the follwing error.

ranlib libauth2.a

I tried to give you enough ontop to see whatever it's comming from..:)

When I did a grep I didn't get anything back for register_t in include and
it's sub directories.

It is probably a safe bet that it is the difference between glibc and
libc5.  Current I am not messing with glibc on this machine because I know
it'll be hours of work to changeover on this machine.  I do know that the
new dist of slak5 which is in beta should be fully glibc, and if it's the
case that all of these problems are related to that, then I will download
the new dist and test it on my other machine.
