Description of problem:
I am unable to compile any C code after upgrading to
glibc-2.3.2-95.30.  It appears that the C libraries are incompatible
with the EM64T architecture.

This is reproducable on my Dell 2850 on EM64T.

This means you have glibc-devel-*.i386.rpm installed, but don't have
glibc-devel-*.x86_64.rpm.
Make sure you have also the latter installed and it will work just fine.
