Here goes the toolchain rebuild for glibc-2.13:

  - major upstream release
  - Fedora 14 uses a pre-release glibc from this branch so it should be 
a fairly safe update...

  - version bump

  - just a rebuild (I will probably bump to a newer snapshot in the 
coming weeks as lots of backports are moving onto that branch lately 
with progress towards gcc-4.6)

  - just a rebuild (not much of interest has landed on the 2.21 branch 
since the last build)

  - patch and rebuild for glibc-2.13
  - not particularly tested here so reports of success/failures would be 

Now for the fun part!  Some x86_64 users (depending on their cpu) will 
notice sound issues with mp3s of certain bitrates in flash when using 
Adobe's pre-release x86_64 flash plugin.  This is because somebody at 
Adobe does not know to not use memcpy with source and destination 
overlapping.  I will not be disabling the optimisation that causes this 
issue because it does result in significant speed increases in 
memcpy/memmove and because the issue is in an unsupported, pre-release, 
binary blob.  For work arounds see:
