http://www.vfxplatform.com/ the one point I'd make is that the vfx industry
"standard" for Linux installs specifies glibc 2.12 so in a lot of studios
you'll see centos 6.8 or 7.  Yes that is very old. But if you remove a
build compatible with that you can pretty much guarantee larger studios
won't be able to use blender.

Our release environment which is based on glibc-2.11 is getting far too old
> and unmaintainable and already causes major problems getting some branches
> to compile.
> I plan to discontinue this builder with the next round of dependencies
> update.
> The default (and only) supported glibc version will be 2.19 (and above).
