Error building glibc-2.10.1

Wed Nov 18 07:38:00 GMT 2009

  Since the current or previous release of Centos (Redhat Enterprise) 
used glibc-2.5x, I thought it would be considered recent, but here's a 
glibc-2.10.1 problem I encountered. The configuration settings were:

--prefix=/usr  CFLAGS=" -O2 -march=i686"

/home2/on07/bldlib210/libc_pic.os: In function `fallocate':
(.text+0xaedb4): undefined reference to `__call_fallocate'
/home2/on07/bldlib210/libc_pic.os: In function `__fallocate64_l64':
(.text+0xaedc5): undefined reference to `__call_fallocate'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[1]: *** [/home2/on07/bldlib210/] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home2/on07/glibc-2.10.1'
make: *** [all] Error 2

Again, help in resolving this so I can get a successful build would be 
appreciated. The assembler syntax change was a very good tip, not 
obvious from binutils or gas changelog.
