I have made a copy of libc-4.7.4 publicly available, for now, in:
ftp://linux.nrao.edu/pub/linux/security/libc-4.7.4/

This version is, as Alan states, not currently a public release; it's
only available in H.J. Lu's "hidden" GCC development area on
tsx-11.mit.edu (and its mirrors, of which linux.nrao.edu is one).
H.J. has given his OK for this "pseudo-release."

--Up.
