I just tried building glibc 2.15 from the release tarball on 
i686-pc-linux-gnu, and I see that the old __i686 issue is 
still there (build failure at i386/fpu/s_frexp.S).

I got the impression from reading libc-alpha that this (and 
various other things) had been fixed lately. Could anyone tell 
me if the __i686 thing is in fact fixed in git, and if so 
what's the recommended git invocation to get the latest 

Thanks very much.
