The JRE/JDK preview releases for Linux 32bit and 64bit depend on glibc 2.4 which is not available on Debian GNU/Linux 4.0 and other distributions used for non-desktop systems.
I don't think Java needs special functions from glibc 2.4 so please use linkage against 2.2 or even older glibc versions.
# ldd jre1.7.0_20090713/lib/amd64/server/libjvm.so
