There is nothing you can do.  This is an internal symbol of the  dynamic 
linker which used to be exported due to limitations of tools and the 
glibc build environment.  It isn't anymore.  In fact, the symbol does 
not even exist anymore.

The only thing you can do is to run the code with an old glibc.  Create 
a tree with old binaries and then run the app by starting the old 
directly with the library path and the binary name as parameters.  This 
is all non-trivial.  A chroot probably doesn't work since you need X.
