Just thought you'd like another data point.  I just installed Cristian's
glibc2-2.0.7 packages.  Like Thomas, I still get:

	postgres=> select '1 min'::timespan;
	@ 60.00 secs
	(1 row)

Without recompiling.  With recompiling, I get:

	postgres=> select '1 min'::timespan;
	@ 1 min 
	(1 row)

I'm using gcc -O2.
