Vijay is right. The correct way to test this is to use the dynamic
linker from your new build to invoke your application, for example:

/home/jagadish/glibc-build/elf/ld.so.1 --library-path
/home/jagadish/glibc-build/:/home/jagadish/glibc-build/nptl:<more
paths to the temp glibc build> ./application
