I don't think that a thread about a release is the right place to discuss a
bug. Please open an issue at bugs.python.org 😉

source of trouble, I have a lab / 'canary in a coal mine' server on a
prerelease OS version (Debian Buster is currently in feature freeze ~
release candidate stage) and I've not noticed anything to have happened
with a newer glibc in relation to building Python, but I've not had success
building a PGO build of 2.7.15 with the GCC shipped at that time, but
building with Clang working fine.

2.7.15 still does not compile fine for me on GCC.

me (and thus implicitly also pass the regression tests) with Clang. They
both get stuck with GCC.

Night gathers, and now my watch begins. It shall not end until my death.
