The real fix would be to patch configure.ac for the glibc-2.21 correction and 
then run autoreconf.  Since the linux_4.x_compilation_fix works on configure.ac, 
the glibc fixes could also be merged into a consolidated patch.

Do you need help doing that?

Also in the patches, do NOT use embedded tabs (in patches or anything else in 
BLFS). The valgrind-3.10.1-linux_4.x_compilation_fix-1.patch needs to be redone 
to remove them.

$ cat /etc/vimrc
" Begin /root/.vimrc

set nocompatible
set backspace=2
syntax on

set expandtab
set tabstop=3
set shiftwidth=3
set laststatus=2

If an existing file already has tabs in it, the command in vim is :retab 
assuming the above vimrc.
