FWIW, glibc-2.15 (gentoo -r2) here, and I've built both kde 4.9 betas 
against it.  I haven't checked patches yet but I doubt gentoo/kde patched 
the beta builds, tho gentoo/tool-chain has obviously patched glibc a bit, 
thus the -r2.  But having not checked those patches I'm not sure they're 
relevant here anyway.

The point being, at least the 4.9 betas are building against glibc-2.15 
here, so a patch has been applied somewhere.  I don't know what version 
of kde-runtime you're attempting to build, but it does seem likely 
they've already patched master/HEAD.  But perhaps not 4.8-branch.

If you'd like me to do more than report that it's working here, I can 
investigate further, but I'm not sure it's worthwhile ATM.  Ask if you 
need it (tho my schedule's not well settled for the next month and I'm 
having hardware issues so I may or may not get back to you)...
