Linux binary wants GLIBC_2.4, GLIBCXX_3.4.9

I am using FreeBSD 7.0 Stable.  I want to run the Linguistica project
Linux binary.  However, after loading the Linux kernel module, when I
try to run the binary the system replies:

./lxa-ubuntu-325: /usr/lib/ version `GLIBCXX_3.4.9' not
found (required by ./lxa-ubuntu-325)
./lxa-ubuntu-325: /usr/lib/obsolete/linuxthreads/ version
`GLIBC_2.4' not found (required by ./lxa-ubuntu-325)

Besides asking the Linguistica developers whether they actually must
require such recent versions of the GNU C, C++ libraries, I tried to
install a more recent linux_base.  However, everything beyond
linux_base-fc4 does not support Linux kernel 2.4.2.

Is there a module for a newer version of the linux kernel that I can
build so as to install a newer linux_base?  Or is there a way to use
the same 2.4.2 module but use more recent GNU C libraries?  I am not
an expert in this area; is there something I haven't thought of?
