The glibc package contains standard libraries which are used by
multiple programs on the system. In order to save disk space and
memory, as well as to make upgrading easier, common system code is
kept in one place and shared between programs. This particular package
contains the most important sets of shared libraries: the standard C
library and the standard math library. Without these two libraries, a
Linux system will not function. The glibc package also contains
national language (locale) support.

This package now also provides ldconfig which was package seperately in
the past. Ldconfig is a basic system program which determines run-time
link bindings between and shared libraries. Ldconfig scans a running
system and sets up the symbolic links that are used to load shared
libraries properly. It also creates a cache (/etc/ which
speeds the loading of programs which use shared libraries.
