It seems to be CentOS, so it's rpm (RedHat-based);

What architecture? Not everyone uses 32 bit Intel 686. (uname -a is more useful that /etc/issue.) The package structure is irrelevant, particularly if you don't have root access.

I'd suggest that you try compiling it - but getting a static glibc
would be painful.

I'm not root on that machine, I can't add things, except my own scripts or

Seems to me that you can use a dynamically linked version, as long as you have an appropriate LDLIBRARYPATH. Even if there wwe some reason why you couldn't have shared objects, you could static link private libraries and dynamic link system ones.

Emails are not formal business letters, whatever businesses may want.
RFC1855 says there should be an address here, but, in a world of spam,
that is no longer good advice, as archive address hiding may not work.
