4.6.0 does build against the latest glibc with:

sed -i 's/IO_ftrylockfile/IO_EOF_SEEN/' gl/lib/*.c
sed -i '/unistd/a #include <sys/sysmacros.h>' gl/lib/mountlist.c
echo "#define _IO_IN_BACKUP 0x100" >> gl/lib/stdio-impl.h

but a new version would still be nice.  I was able to create a tarball 
that we could use.  I'm undecided about whether to use it.
