for GNU/Linux 2.0.0?

    Can one deduce anything about the age of devtools used for building
a shared library from the following? Of all the shared libraries in
the InsightII application, which I am having problems running under
glibc 2.4, only one reports...

ELF 32-bit LSB shared object, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), for GNU/Linux 2.0.0, not stripped

for 'file *'. The remaining ones report...

ELF 32-bit LSB shared object, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), not stripped

Does the presence of the text 'for GNU/Linux 2.0.0' in the output from
the file program on this shared library ( tell me anything
about the general age of the tools used to build it? Also that particular
shared library doesn't seem work with ldd. I get...

ldd ./
/usr/bin/ldd: ./ /usr/local/lib/ bad ELF interpreter: No such file or directory

...but using I see...

/lib/ --verify --list ./ =>  (0x00829000) => /lib/ (0x004c9000)
        /usr/local/lib/ => /lib/ (0x0082a000)

In theory all of the files in InsightII were built for RHEL 2.1 but I
suspect that the is a legacy build from some ancient
devtools and system. It would be nice if I could deduce how old it
really is in terms of devtools and glibc.
     Thanks for any hints.
