I am trying to install Red Hat 8.0 rpms in a Red Hat 8.0 system
Previous Mono releases did not have that dependency, and compiling from
source works fine

I know it is precomputed by RPM :) what I meant by unintentionally is that
maybe that machine was patched and upgraded to glibc 2.3.2 for some other
reason and the rpmbuild picked up that dependency

Or maybe it is a legitimate dependency because for some reason Mono now
requires 2.3.2 (maybe some threading bugfixes ?) Then it is ok and I will
happily upgrade, but we should put a note somewhere in the website (from
irc, it seems I am not the only one seeing this)

I do my development with CVS, but I want to release a new mod_mono rpm and
would prefer to build it against the mono 0.24 rpms

un saludo
