1. your compiler is too old
2. additionally it misses important patches it seems

go to <> and grab gcc-2.95.2-1c and 
binutils- Maybe it was already copied to the official R5 updates 
section in the meantime.

FYI, AFAI can see, nothing releated to hesiod initgroups support has been 
checked in for the pending glibc-2.1.3 release.
