[OpenAFS-devel] Building openafs for old glibc 2.0.x?

They are very stable _servers_ currently - a couple oracle servers in
particular. They are running a current kernel, but the O/S install is old.
We won't upgrade any 5.2 _user_ stations, they'll be required to move to 6.2
I doubt we'll upgrade afs client on them in any case, as they seem to be
running stable without any problems.
