It means that you are depending on some symbols from the libc which are 
not available on your machine. If you need to use the same binary on 
multiple machines with different versions, you need to build it on the 
oldest machine you have so that you don't depend on features only 
available in some subsets of your configurations.

Note however that this is mostly hopeless - ABI compatibility is very 
hard to obtain with python extensions, especially on Linux.
