No, from what I understand it *has* to be the latest updated version of
glibc from RH8.

It's the latest from the updates.

I have a suspicion that the existing glibc code (possibly the headers
including NPTL code?) might be what's causing the problem. The only
solution I can see is, er, to build and install the RH8 glibc in order to
build and install the RH8 glibc.
