Okay, again: I'm on uClibc, I'm building it from latest git master
branches (before I used nptl branches). My uClibc is
nptl_merge-35-g139b8f0. Maybe you can attach your uClibc config to
start from? I did research, I posted all of my steps on this research,
but you continue to claim "uClibc is okay, glibc is not". This is
wrong. uClibc is not "okay".

This is not uClibc vs GNU lib C issue. It's compatibility issue. Let
me guess: you are on x86 or x86_64 host, right? I'm not. You are using

So, re-read my message, please. Post your uClibc config. Post your
Post your pre-processed date.c. Post what's wrong with building with
