thanks to Moica & Henri for details!

in the mean time I got some more info: SL6 uses glibc 2.12
and was released march 2011 (RHEL6 is from november 2010).

and up to TL 2017 glibc 2.7 was required (in TL2017 only asy and dvisvgm binaries need glibc 2.14 -- interesting;)
and should work with SL6.  IMHO not bad fuer a 6+ years old linux distro...

I've given some hints/links how compiling glibc 2.14 might be done,
but getting red of SL6/RHEL6 might be the better way if possible
(yea, all that compatibility fuzz;)
