[Bug-gsl] cannot ls after installing gsl-1.5

I've just ended an epic ordeal following the installation of gsl-1.5.
The summary is that installing gsl-1.5 wreaked havoc on my system and it couldnt do essential things like rpm or ls. A detailed description follows.

I obtained gsl-1.5.tar.gz from ftp.gnu.org/gnu
Then I installed in the normal way:
make install

I instantly noticed this:
address@hidden gsl-1.5]$ ls
ls: /usr/local/lib/libpthread.so.0: version `GLIBC_2.3.3' not found
(required by /lib/tls/librt.so.1)

Eventually, I discovered that the install step created a symbolic link:
/usr/local/lib/libpthread.so.0 -> /lib/libpthread.so.0

This link was the origin of my problems, and removing it made my computer usable again. I haven't done extensive testing, but removing this link seems not to have effected the utility of gsl.

Fedora Core 2 / 2.6.5-1.358smp
