(w/RedHat) Is it safe to upgrade glibc-2.3.2-45 to glibc-2.3.2-66 ?

Apparently, there's a patch between glibc-2.3.2-45 (available
via Rawhide) and glibc-2.3.2-66 (available via Fedora). I upgraded from
-22 to -27 without a problem, but would going to -66 present a greater
risk? Theoretically, the change of a release number but not a version
number means there is no change to the ABI, right?

I want to know because I'd like to build a more optimized
X-server, with the neomagic framebuffer optimizations to be found in
XFree86 CVS, so I can watch movies on my Thinkpad. But I can't do that
without first upgrading to glibc-2.3.2-66.

Any clues?

Should be OK.....

$ rpm -q glibc
glibc-2.3.2-101.4

$ cat /etc/redhat-release
Red Hat Linux release 9 (Shrike)

Just make sure you get all the required packages; rpm -qa | grep glibc
