My last build had this at the top of the ChangeLog file:

2002-08-02  Roland McGrath  <address@hidden>

        * elf/Makefile ($(objpfx)interp.os): Depend on config.make,
        since it sets the variables we use in a -D switch.

and that built and worked fine.  From the look at the current CVS update,
only fr.po and sysdeps/unix/utime.c have changed, so I guess we are fine.
There are no outstanding issues for the 2.2 branch that I know of, and the
system has gotten some testing now.

Yes.  Although there is no need to worry deeply, if there is a minor glitch,
Jeff can get it into the Debian package as a glibc co-maintainer in Debian.

We can also start worrying about the HEAD banch as soon as you think it is
