Updating to a new glibc isn't a trivial task.... That being said, I know that 
AltimatOS won't be releasing with 2.6.x, since we're too far along toward 
release. additionally doing a check of another distro's tree, looks like 
Mandriva 2008.0 will be on 2.6.1 from checking the repo of cooker, which 
isn't too far from release either, so this is going to bite at least these 
two distributions. since Matthias said that 2.6.91 was needed for the fix.
