Did you apply the patch in the release notes and then recompile? And
make sure you're using the new version? If you did, and it doesn't
work, you did it wrong. Following those directions fixes the make
problem. End of story.

Wrong. ldd oldmake will show that it's linking with the new libc.
That invokes the problem, because the new libc expects correct
behavior, where the old make expects incorrect behavior.
