Problems building R6B with Linux/glibc 2.1

Try deleting -lieee from the libraries included in the
link. I needed to do this on SuSE 6.2. I'm not sure why,
but reading the error message I think it might be that the 
IEEE library thinks it's part of glibc2.0 or something.

I have been unable to build Erlang R6B-0 under Linux with glibc 2.1
due to the following errors:

The machine is an up-to-date Debian potato system.  Any ideas?
