Well, I am eager to get the patches and at work we also use OSF.
As for 2.1R or -current I can use either one, mostly because I have
two disks one is 2.1-stable and the other is 2.2-current
From The Desk Of John Birrell :
As of last week, libc_r builds and installs OK (for me) from -current.
I know of two problems, one with select() and one with _exit(). I have
local patches for these, and I'm working on a set of patches for -current
that won't get me yelled at (!). And then there's an update required to
match POSIX 1003.1c draft 11 (the current stuff is mostly draft 4 to match
OSF/1^H^H^H^H^Hanother system we use).
We sucessfully use the libc_r from -current with an otherwise 2.1R
installation including the non-threaded X libraries. Window refreshes
are a lot faster, even on a dog-of-a-machine.
