By the way, Gentoo's toolchain maintainers agreed, so this became upstream bug #24696. A fix, currently in its 8th iteration after several rounds of reviews, is in preparation, so it will eventually be commited to the repository. Hopefully :) https://sourceware.org/ml/libc-alpha/2019-06/msg00957.html Meanwhile, I also discovered why I didn't have any problems with Gentoo's packaging of version 2.27, and did with version 2.29. It turns out Gentoo did supply an nsswitch.conf file, but it was buried inside the archive that contained Gentoo's patchset, so one had to extract all files to discover it. This file said: group: compat files So there was no 'db' service configured for the group database, and the endgrent() bug, which Gentoo maintainers traced back to at least GNU libc 2.26, was not exposed. As of version 2.28, this file was no longer supplied with the patchset, and upstream's example one was installed instead. G.
