I failed to mention that the app will also be having to deal with

Ah, well, if you want anything like Posix-compliant
signal handling, you'll probably want NPTL.
Well, the application is a fancy init/service-manager/etc. type of
thing, that if it works is going to replace SysVinit and/or simpleinit
on my systems. As such, I doubt if many RH9 users are going to be
interested in it :-)
2.6 and cvs glibc it is, then...
