So, it appears that the arch script does not believe that glibc-2.8 is
supported.  There is support for 2.[3-6]*.  Any reason not to edit the
arch script to include through 2.8?

Here is the relevant section from arch script, it seems:

------------------------------------
      # verify the GNU C lib version
      # For an alternative means to determine GNU C lib version see
      # http://www.gnu.org/software/libc/FAQ.html#s-4.9
      case $lxmachine in
      amd64)
         libc=`/lib64/libc.so.6 2>/dev/null | head -1`
         ;;
      ia64)
         libc=`/lib/libc.so.6.1 2>/dev/null | head -1`
         ;;
      *)
         libc=`/lib/libc.so.6 2>/dev/null | head -1`
         ;;
      esac
      libc=`echo $libc | sed -e 's/^.*version//'`
      libc=`echo $libc | cut -d ' ' -f1`

      case $libc in
      2.2*)
         unsupported="u"
         ;;
      2.[3-6]*)
         ;;
      *)
         unsupported="UNSUPPORTED-"
         lxrelease=${lxrelease}-GLIBC-${libc}
      esac
-------------------------------

Thanks,
Sean
