Yes, but as I pointed out, that is something that the distro maintainers 
specifically prohibit, as it breaks other things - notably glibc!

OK, lets try and tackle this thing another way: Does klibc have to be compiled 
against the kernel with which it is to be used? Or can I (as glibc sppears to 
do) compile it against the stock Slackware kernel (for which the headers will 
be correct), and then use it with my own kernel?

I'm sorry if this is frustrating you, but I'm sure you realise that you are 
giving me advice diametrically opposed to the system developers that I have 
trusted for over 15 years!
