Sorry to have annoyed. I'm on 56k and I don't had time/bw to get -current glibc. So I found the bug as this, and was leading to a version numbering error.
Anyway this is very odd that the GLIBC_2.3.4 already defined in glibc-2.3.3 ... I wonder if it could it be a package error?
Maybe someone, should ask the slackware master? /* I don't know how to reach him */
Anyway thanks for investigations.
