Unfortunately, No.  The current version of the x86-64 does not have, and 
I can't install the glibc-2.3.3 libs to run the software, and I'm pretty 
sure the i386 version would be the same, however I was hoping someone 
could tell me.  There should be some backwards compatibility, but 
apparently there is a specific call in the 2.3.3 lib that is not 
available in the 2.3.4.
