ok, i'm confused since the glibc-ports-2.4 README explicitly states:

"Like all glibc add-ons, this must be used by specifying the directory
in the --enable-add-ons option when running glibc's configure script."
but you say you didn't need to do that?  that certainly seems to fly
in the face of that sentence.
