I've looked through the changes from 3.79 to 3.79.1 and the problem is
that make tries to use the clock_*() functions which are new in 2.2
(therefore you don't see the problem with glibc 2.1.3).  The clock_*()
functions are in librt which brings in libpthread which restricts the
stack size to 2MB.

The solution: don't use clock_*() for Linux, it does not have any
advantage but instead causes these problems.

So no, Red Hat didn't screw up.  Paul added just another hardly tested,
useless feature to make.
