Sorry if this sounds dumb - it's late in the week. ;-)
Is this an issue, even if your program doesn't use any
procedures/functions from the dynamically linked C library. For example,
a console application that includes the cthreads unit (which dynamically
links to C Library), but doesn't actually use the C Library or threads.
Would such a console application not run on an 8 year old Linux distro?
