André posted this on the devel list recently about how to install Glibc:

1 - Become superuser
# a superuser terminal has to be open before running step 2
# since you will not be able to perform 'su' or 'sudo' after step 2
and before step 3
2 - InstallPackage Glibc--2.4--i686.tar.bz2
# there is no need to update any file inside the Settings directory
3 - cd /Programs/Glibc; mv 2.3.2 old_2.3.2
# a rm -rf could be performed as well, but having keeping a backup may
be useful
# if something goes wrong (having a live cd copy available might be
also useful :)

Just my -- no, André's! -- two cents. :) (I'll pay him back some other time ;) )
