0.6.31 Linux install fails

The 0.6.31 Linux installer doesn't work under Mandriva Linux 2009.1 (previous versions intalled fine):

Code:
# sudo python -c "import urllib2; exec urllib2.urlopen('http://status.calibre-ebook.com/linux_installer').read(); main()"
Enter the installation directory for calibre [/opt]:
Will download and install calibre-0.6.31-i686.tar.bz2

right...

So I downgraded to 0.6.26, but since upgrading the glibc system-wide a PITA, is it possible to run newer calibres with a separate glibc copy using LD_LIBRARY_PRELOAD?

just stick the glibc in /opt/calibre it should be used in preference to the system one
