For all of you interested in trying it out without having to go out
there to build glibc, I have put a full i386 binary jailroot of glibc 
with rtnptl in 


Just download and untar in /opt [required], and build your programs
by including


in your Makefile [you might need to adjust the compiler used in
the Makefile.inc file; I haven't tried other than gcc-3.3.2. YMMV].

Please let me know of any problems, I'll be more than glad to
help solving them.
