 Thanks, that works fine. Where should I have discovered that this is what I

In general the developers don't like to encourage the building/installing of GLIBC.

Right. My reason is not to install it, but to write some tests and add a function. Should I be building it a different way?

Every build of glibc is specially tuned for the target therefore a simple bare 'configure' isn't appropriate.

Yet this is what the documentation implies. From INSTALL:

  `configure' takes many options, but the only one that is usually
  mandatory is `--prefix'

If that's wrong, it should be changed.

-fno-stack-protector used to be required on my Ubuntu machine.  This
may not be the case any longer with a newer compiler.

Well, I have an up-to-date Hardy system, and it obviously is required there, as I said.
