[unixODBC-support] RedHat Shrike, GLIBC 2.3.2, and Oracle

I'm trying to use unixODBC 2.2.14 on Red Hat Linux 9 (Shrike) to connect
with a remote Oracle XE database. I have done this successfully on
different Linux distros before. I'm using oracle's latest instant client
and odbc drivers, and when I try to connect I receive the following error
in the log:

[ODBC][31798][1259874041.281054][SQLConnect.c][1063]Can't open lib
'/usr/lib/libsqora.so.11.1' : /usr/lib/libclntsh.so.11.1: symbol
semtimedop, version GLIBC_2.3.3 not defined in file libc.so.6 with link
time reference

Admittedly this machine has GLIBC 2.3.2. However I was successful in doing
the same thing on a Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES release 3 (Taroon). That
machine also has GLIBC 2.3.2, and the latest unixODBC and oracle drivers
work just fine. It makes me think that the GLIBC version isn't the true

Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
