Sorry, my first post goes to wrong destination...

This little program is properly compiling and working on my PC:

#include <stdlib.h>
#include <glob.h>

int main()
 int i;
 glob_t globbuf;

 glob("/sbin", GLOB_ERR | GLOB_NOSORT, NULL, &globbuf);
 printf("gl_pathc: [%d]\n", globbuf.gl_pathc);
 for (i = 0; i < globbuf.gl_pathc; i++)
   printf("gl_pathv[%d]: [%s]\n", i, globbuf.gl_pathv[i]);

 return 0;

So, my glibc is not broken.
Something goes wrong with make for libcvsapi.so

ldd -r cvsapi/.libs/libcvsapi.so shows following:
