I agree that adding a PROBLEMS entry, and trying to come up with a
proper fix for 22.2 (not 22.1), is the best course of action at this

I think rms usually does not read web-based bug reports, so he
probably has not looked at the long bugzilla entry, and may have
missed the important information that you state above. Namely, that
the problem is not that Emacs can't be built on FC7, but rather that
if the glibc version is changed Emacs needs to be rebuilt with the
stated workaround. Whilst it would be good to fix properyl, I hope
this can be treated as a non-showstopper right now.
