/usr/lib/libc.a is provided as part of the glibc-devel rpm.

If you merely erased the file with a rm command or something like that,
you can probably just download the glibc-devel rpm from your friendly
neighbourhood Centos mirror site, extract libc.a from it and copy it
back into /usr/lib.

Or you could download the glibc-devel rpm and use the rpm command with
the "--replacepkgs" directive to reinstall the whole rpm.

Either method should work.
