Mike, all,


the packages you need should exist:

Ok, so you need a package for glibc 2.2.
There are two choices, both on the 4.0 download page:

1) From the section "Linux (non RPM package) downloads", first row, a 
"tar.gz":  "Linux (x86, glibc-2.2, ..."

2) A bit further down, the RPMs:
"Linux x86 generic RPM (statically linked against glibc 2.2.5) downloads"
Here, the "server" and "client" RPMs do not require the glibc 2.3.

I am surprised the "shared" packages need glibc 2.3, typically this 
should be indicated by a "-glibc23" part in the package name.
For which purpose do you need "shared" and "shared-compat"?

Yes, you can build it from source.
IMHO, running the RPM build process (using the "spec" file) on your 
machine should even provide these packages.


HTH,
