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

I'm fairly sure that OpenAFS will still build on RH 5.2, except i
don't know if there is support in there for Linux 2.0.  Feel free to
try using my 6.2 SPEC-file with OpenAFS 1.0.1.

Otherwise, I'd suggest you convince your 5.2 users to upgrade to
software which is less than two-years out-of-date.
