As glibc is a very important part of the base of your whole system, it's 
probably not wise to tinker with it.  I have heard of some folks running 
  2 versions, but more about folks killing their systems and 
reinstalling everything.

Are you sure it's a glibc problem and not some older libs you need to 
make it work?  I know with WordPerfect 8, it requires the older shlibs 
to run, but everything else is good.
