    41           <para>This package has an issue when compiled against versions of
    42           Glibc later than 2.3.2. Some of the Coreutils utilities (such as
    43           <command>head</command>, <command>tail</command>, and
    44           <command>sort</command>) will reject their traditional syntax, a
    45           syntax that has been in use for approximately 30 years. This old
    46           syntax is so pervasive that compatibility should be preserved until
    47           the many places where it is used can be updated. Backwards compatibility
    48           is achieved by setting the <envar>DEFAULT_POSIX2_VERSION</envar>
    49           environment variable to <quote>199209</quote> in the above command.
    50           If you do not want Coreutils to be backwards compatible with the
    51           traditional syntax, then omit setting the
    52           <envar>DEFAULT_POSIX2_VERSION</envar> environment variable. It is
    53           important to remember that doing so will have consequences, including
    54           the need to patch the many packages that still use the old syntax.
    55           Therefore, it is recommended that the instructions be followed exactly
    56           as given above.</para>
