Angry I erased glibc-2.3.6 from my LFS-6.2 by mistake using PACO. Compiled replace needed.

While I was trying to update my glib, by mistake I completely erased glibc-2.3.6 from my LFS-6.2 system. The thing is I use PACO to keep track of my installed packages and I did not make a backup copy from thatat package before I erased it. I managed to boot up my system again copying a and other libraries from a rescue distribution. I did that hoping I could recompile glibc again, but I've had trouble on doing that.

So I posted this hoping someone else who actually have a LFS-2.6 system could have a precompiled glibc-2.3.6 tarball.

Thanks in advance.

What is your build setup? What problems are you having rebuilding glibc?

No point in asking for a precompiled binary when you don't even specify the host CPU.

You wouldn't happen to have access to another distro, would you? One that has
a LiveCD and you can load into the memory with a compiler?

If you can, I'd recommend trying to boot up that way and try recompiling from
that distro by mounting the partition and using './configure
--prefix=/mnt/hdaX' or similar.

Could you also post the config.log as well?
