I'll probably roll out 2.17 between watching the bowl games this weekend but was curious if anyone else had already given it a go.
LFS SVN posted the directions for glibc-2.17
and a number of other new packages just a few hours after
I had built the newest library. In the best sense of the term, the upgrade to 2.17 from 2.16.0 was uneventful. And, unlike 2.16.0, glibc-2.17
produces fewer errors during the check phase, just these two expected ones on my box:
[/usr/src/sources-lfs/glibc-build/posix/annexc.out] Error 1 (ignored)
[/usr/src/sources-lfs/glibc-build/conform/run-conformtest.out] Error 1 (ignored)
