I did (on redhat 9):
tar jxvf glibc-x.y.z.tar.bz2
../glibc-x.y.z/configure --enable-add-ons=linuxthreads --prefix=/usr/local/sbin
and at the begin of making an error occurs saying that "... configure. in: ... command not found ... "
Has anybody successfully recompiled glibc? please tell some details?
Yes, I've compiled it. What you did looks right, except you don't say whether you downloaded linuxthreads, too (if that's still separate). Maybe that's what it can't find.
