In case you missed it, I was being quite sarcastic.  I have no problem
at all with removing that kind of old cruft.  glibc aside, I don't think
you can easily run a 2.4 based kernel on a FC4/5 system anyway.  I can
just imagine all of the flame wars that people will want to start due to
this rather innocuous change.  Seems to happen all the time.
