Sorry, I should have said that I could compile libc 5.4.17 with a
5.3.7 system, but that I couldn't run ELF programmes anymore (with the
new libc), because of missing symbols:

% ls
ls: can't resolve symbol '__stop___libc_subinit'
ls: can't resolve symbol '__start___libc_subinit'

Perhaps one can compile a working libc 5.4.17 with a 5.3.12 system,
but I'm convinced that you can't compile a working 5.4.17 with a 5.3.7
system. Evidence: as soon as I installed the binary 5.4.17, I was able
to compile a working libc 5.4.17.
