Be advised that updating the C library is no trivial task and it is very
easy to damage one's system.  Unless you are interested in helping with the
development and maintenance of the C library yourself, you will find it
much easier to use a binary distribution instead.  The code in this release
has already been built and tested by maintainers of GNU/Linux and GNU/Hurd
binary distributions basing their systems on it.

This release can be compiled using GCC 4.0, but you should expect many more
compiler warnings than when using GCC 3.4.  The development version of libc
is better suited to being built with the most recent GCC versions.

Note the `linuxthreads' package is required to build a useful system C
library for use with Linux kernels prior to version 2.6.  To build a
configuration supporting only Linux 2.6 kernels or to build for
GNU/Hurd, the package is not required.  The main glibc-2.3.6 release
package contains the Native POSIX Threads Library (NPTL) contributed
by Ulrich Drepper, which supports Linux 2.6 kernels only.
