Comment 1 Ulrich Drepper 2003-04-22 07:27:57 UTC
glibc is backward compatible, not forward copatible.  Code compiled with one
version of glibc is not guaranteed to run on systems with older glibcs.  This is
also true for statically linked binaries which is NSS modules.

That's just a 'don't do it'.
