    Thanks for the hint, but I already have the compat libs installed, 
and unfortunately, the 2.3.3 is not amongst them.  IIRC, there was no 
listings for a 2.3.3 glibc  for CentOS on any of the google sites I 
checked out.  Several other distros, but none here.  I'm grabbing the 
3.5 /i386 bits now and will likely drop back to that version.  I guess 
the weather development community is not quite ready for prime-time 
64-bit OS's under linux, but other *nixes are already supported.
