I'll write here the reasoning behind this, so that it can be corrected 
if needed.

Ariel's special version available at 
uses glibc 2.5. It satisfies all users, including Red Hat 5 (and, fully 
compatible, CentOS 5) users. So adopting this as a baseline should 
guarantee that our binaries run on almost all vendor-supported 
distributions. Red Hat 5 and CentOS 5 are quite old but still supported 
from their vendors, and reasonably common in corporate environments.
