Problem With Local Installation of GLibC 2.5.1

I, am using a shared Debian 2.14.3 system, as a non-privileged user. I
installed GlibC 2.5.1 locally in my home folder from source issuing
the following commands-
./configure --prefix=/path/to/my/local/
make install

Though the installation phase went on quietly, with some "clock skew"
warnings, but after "make install" it showed an error, complaining
that it cannot write the configuration file. After that many of my
applications are giving segmentation fault.
Can anyone help me regarding how to uninstall GlibC 2.5.1 and then
reinstall it locally correctly?
