It's just copied from the official glibc package.

Is there a reason to use git source instead of a release package?

Took way much longer on a doggy connection.

Yeah, unfortunately there's a chicken and egg problem. The first time you build it you need to be on linux, or a VM, or download a binary package from someone you trust.

Well apparently I cannot read. It clearly says in the wiki that I have to build the package in a Linux system, then copy it to the Windows PC.

I'm off to do that. Ignore everything I wrote below.

Thank you for uploading this version of glibc.

I wanted to give this a try because I was running into the Assertion `ec >= 0' problem that many people have previously reported. However, I am running into a similar problem when trying to build this.

Checks were all okay and gcc calls compiled without incident (as far as I know). The problem seems to be related to bison.

bison --yacc --name-prefix=__gettext --output plural.c plural.y
bison: ../sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/spawni.c:366: __spawnix: Assertion `ec >= 0' failed.
make[2]: *** [Makefile:46: plural.c] Aborted (core dumped)
