As the result, some of these binaries do not work on some of my
(admittedly old) computers:

   context: /lib/i386-linux-gnu/i686/cmov/ version `GLIBC_2.23' not found (required by context)

I guess it is compiled with dynamic linking of libm unlike the
other TL binaries that always use static linking.

This is just frustrating.

Good luck
