I think a configure option won't work.  The issue here was that
the binary is being installed on a machine with an older

Unfortunately it's pretty hard to test this at runtime too (preadv
doesn't return ENOSYS, and there isn't really a good way to test if
the preadv "syscall" is broken because the randomly aligned buffer
might be aligned OK).

I don't think there's a good solution for this at the qemu level.
However I have a working patch for glibc:
