Extract from the file release.libc-5.2.18 by H.J. <>
found on sunsite and other mirrors (if anyone has bothered to do some basic
"read-before-you-install" kinda thing!)

------------ begin release.libc-5.2.18 ----------------

The structure DIR, defined in sysdeps/linux/dirstream.h, was changed in
release 5.2.0. If you upgrade from release 5.1.4 or earlier to release
5.2.0 or later, you must reboot after installing the new libraries. If
you compile your own library, *do not* "make install". Instead, copy the
new* to /lib, do "ldconfig -v", reboot, then do "make install"

A dirent bug, which erroneously defined d->reclen to d->namlen if USE_GNU
was defined, has been fixed. Unfortunately, some GNU packages depend on
this bug. GNU make 3.xx is one of them. A patch is included here.
Please recompile GNU make before installing this library. Otherwise
you have to use "make -f Makefile" to specify which Makefile to
use when rebuilding GNU make.

A back door has been added for the file descriptor in DIR. You need to
define DIRENT_ILLEGAL_ACCESS to access the dd_fd field. You should use
dirfd () to get the the file descriptor in DIR. Use this at your own

------------- end release.libc-5.2.18 --------------------

Look for "make-dirent-patch" (or something like that) in the GCC
subdirectory of sunsite (or mirrors). I believe there is also a patched ELF

Hope this helps.
