I noticed this in Configure:
# glibc 2.2.90 and above apparently change stdio streams so Perl's
# direct buffer manipulation no longer works. The Configure tests
# should be changed to correctly detect this, but until then,
# the following check should at least let perl compile and run.
# (This quick fix should be updated before 5.8.1.)
# To be defensive, reject all unknown versions, and all versions > 2.2.9.
# A. Dougherty, June 3, 2002.
