1. If you're "not sure if gcc 3.0 will do the right thing for glibc"
it would be a good idea to:
1. Check if it really doesn't.
2. Identify what's going wrong. And try to explain it to the rest
3. Try to come up with a fix.
Jumping straight to step 3 really isn't a good idea.
2. I think your patch introduces too much "black magic" in the GCC
configure process. I fail to understand why the things you're
doing are necessary. Apart from that, special-casing Linux should
only be done as a last resort. Since you fail to produce any
arguments why it's necessary, I don't think we should consider it
