I did build cluster 6.3.17, and I also did that on the host we use for "generic" builds for Linux/x86_64 in tar.gz format.

In that build, I had many test failures, especially in the cluster functional area, so these binaries were not fit for publishing.

AIUI, the cluster team looked at these test failures, and they attributed them to the lack of the "poll()" system call on that platform, which the cluster 6.3.17 sources need for correct operation.
The host we use for these builds runs RedHat 3 which uses a Linux 2.4 kernel, so it is simply too old.

AIUI, the cluster team by now added code to check for "poll()" at run time and, if missing, fall back on "select()".
This change is present in cluster 6.3.20, so that build succeeded on the host.

I have just finished the cluster 6.3.20 build and assume the binaries will be come available in the next days.

Sorry, set wrong status - we will support that platform, just not in 6.3.17
(unless cluster team does some backport, that's out of my scope).
