It is reported by some users that they cannot run SaxonC on some Debian systems without upgrading the default glibc version.

Some users state that they are running GLIBC 2.32 and also 2.31

It should be possible to build the SaxonC distribution produced by Graalvm on machines with older version of GLIBC.

We have patched this in the build process by building the SaxonC distribution on an older release of GLIBC in a docker container. Preliminary C++ tests done.

Tests completed for this patch. Marking this bug as resolved.

At the time of the maintenance release we need to update the documentation to remove limitation on GLIBC on page!starting/installing/installingLinux Remove the text:

As a prerequisite SaxonC requires GLIBC_2.32 as minimum. Note that on some 
Debian stable releases this version of the C library is not available: installing the 
library package libc6 should resolve any compile issues.
