Description of Problem:

When trying to use the program "fasta" from bioinformatics Accelrys GCG package  
I got a relocation error :

relocation error: ./fasta: symbol __libc_sigaction, version GLIBC_2.2 not
defined in file libc.so.6 with link time reference

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
the last for GCG
glibc is 2.2.5-40

How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.get fasta program from GCG package
2. run it :
3. see result

Actual Results:
./fasta: relocation error: ./fasta: symbol __libc_sigaction, version GLIBC_2.2
not defined in file libc.so.6 with link time reference

Expected Results: 
Should be on unconfigured host :
 Configuration error.  Unable to open "GenCoreRoot:gcgcore/account/configure.txt".
Configuration problem: can't find GCGBASEROOT
Contact your system manager.

Additional Information:	
This binary works OK with all others 7.x RedHat Linux

The problem seem to come from glibc :
on RedHat 7.2
$ readelf -s  libc.so.6 |grep __libc_sigaction
    67: 0002ea14   306 FUNC    GLOBAL DEFAULT   11 __libc_sigaction@@GLIBC_2.2

on redHat 7.3
$ readelf -s  libc.so.6 |grep __libc_sigaction
    65: 000291e4   289 FUNC    GLOBAL DEFAULT   11 __libc_sigaction@@GLIBC_PRIVATE

and not expected GLIBC_2.2

Comment 1 Jakub Jelinek 2002-11-06 12:41:50 UTC
__libc_sigaction always used to be a glibc private symbol, never declared in
any headers nor intended for anything but libpthread. Recent glibc's use symbol
versioning to make it clear what is and what is not a private interface.
fasta needs to be fixed to avoid using internal interfaces which can be removed
or changed at any time.
