As I mentioned, the library doesn't exist.  I need to build it, but I'm
not sure where it comes from (glibc I think) or how to get it built.
 Its a target library, so I have to build it for ppc and deliver it to
my target box.  That part I know how to do, its creating the library to
begin with that I don't know how to do.
