I am using the same layout and RPM setup that the Red Hat 6.3 package
had, but I had to make a fair number of changes to their setup to make
6.4 work.  I think I probably ended up changing about 1/3rd of the
"action" portions of their .spec file, and the patch file I used to
make it install and link cleanly was generated from scratch. I am not
doing this for Red Hat Software, I am doing it because I need to
deploy 6.4 and doing it via RPM is the easiest way to deploy on Red
Hat. And perhaps more importantly, I'm doing it because it's there
:-).

Well, if you have some suggestions I'm certainly not loathe to ignore them!
Right now, the only suggestion I can think of that I'd like to implement
would be to somehow figure out how to compile the Python module at the same
time that I compile the rest of it, but I'm not sure that Python is capable
yet of doing that Perl trick of compiling a module against the Perl .so 
link library without having the source code around. I'll have to check
with the Python gurus on that one.

Well, RH5.2 is still using glibc 2.0.7, albeit patched up about 10
more times since RH 5.1 :-). But sure, if you have a test case to run,
drop it in the mail to me and I'll be happy to run it. 

One thought: Do you have a TZ environment variable set on your RH5.1?
I don't remember whether glibc needs one or not (I know there were other
programs sensitive to the TZ environment variable under RH5.1, like BRU, 
but it is 12:30am here on the east coast and my mind is not as clear as
it should be :-).
