Since it appears to have been caused by building on Fedora 9,
the answer is very likely "yes".

In particular, Fedora 9 very likely has a glibc version > 2.3,
and apps built on such a system tend to have linker
dependencies on symbols introduced in glibc 2.4,
libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.4' not found
load-time errors.

I also suspect compiler runtime incompatibilities.

(I've never used Fedora, and I'm not suggesting there's anything
wrong with Fedora 9, aside from being too new.)
