SRPMs aren't compiled at all, are they?

I thought SRPMs were 'source' RPMS.  I'm a Debian user, so I've never
checked that assumption.

In any case, the problems I described certainly don't affect anything
compiled locally.  They affect things compiled against a broken libc,
which was in turn compiled by a broken egcs.
