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.
BTW is the best way to find rpm dependecies (by file or package name!)
