Well, I don't think it is perverse. I have already more than 10 days
uptime with a machine, that runs completely with 2.3.1 (and this machine
was only for about 13h idle).

In order to run with the new ld.so, you may try the following:

<prefix>/lib/ld.so.1 --library-path <prefix>/lib:<prefix>/usr/usr/lib

or you set up a chroot system with all needed programs.
