Our network crashed for a day and my earlier follow-up (enclosed below) 
apparently didn't make it.

Fwiw, I compiled a new set yesterday, using Red Hat 5.2 /glibc-2.0, for pdftex:

 ldd ~/texlive/bin/i686-pc-linux-gnu/pdftex => /usr/lib/ (0x40003000) => /lib/ (0x40044000) => /lib/ (0x4005f000)
        /lib/ => /lib/ (0x00000000)

Staszek, if this set solves the problems that you've heard of, it can easily
be uploaded to otherwise, someone else has to look into it...

Binaries were build with glibc-2.1. We have a single linux box
with glibc-2.0, so in principle they could be redone.
