In general the developers don't like to encourage the
building/installing of GLIBC. Every build of glibc is specially tuned
for the target therefore a simple bare 'configure' isn't appropriate.

-fno-stack-protector used to be required on my Ubuntu machine. This
may not be the case any longer with a newer compiler.
