f17-gmp and glibc-2.14.90-13

One of my packages (xemacs) failed the final build in the f17-gmp
build target [1], and was marked FTBFS [2].  I see that the f17-gmp
builds are now being merged into Rawhide.  As I pointed out on that
bug, the xemacs build failure was due to building against glibc
2.14.90-13.  I don't know the exact cause, but the build is happy
again with glibc 2.14.90-15.  If other packages in the f17-gmp tag
were built against the buggy glibc, we might be merging a bunch of
buggy builds into Rawhide.
