[stgt] Frequent coredump of tgtd under Centos 6.0

I meant supported on the earlier version of glibc.  I assume RHEL
would have the same issues with the compiled RPMs as CentOS.  I did
get the rpmbuild to work -- it had an apparent hard-coded dependency
on xsl-stylesheets-1.76.1, but the latest RHEL/Centos version was
1.75.2.  I got around the build error by

ln -s /usr/share/sgml/docbook/xsl-stylesheets-1.75.2

After that, it built clean and I got it installed now.  I'll let you
know if we have any more segfault issues.

Thanks for the support!
