Update and install the dependencies it needs in order to work properly.

Depending on your system/Glibc version, the list could be large or short. Often you just need to upgrade glibc-common, glibc, and glibc-devel. Unless you are making a MAJOR upgrade (say from version 2.3.2 to 2.3.3) in which case you may need to even upgrade gcc.
[edit]
BTW rpmfind.net is the best way to find rpm dependecies (by file or package name!)
