Looks like the glibc update will interfere with other rebuilds (e.g.: Perl).

At least my pidgin package is affected, and will give "/lib/libc.so.6:
version `GLIBC_2.14' not found" errors if moved to [extra] without
glibc being moved to [core] at the same time.

What's the preferred course of action we take here? Rebuild affected
packages with the old glibc? Wait for glibc to move to [core] before
moving the Perl rebuilds?
