glibc=2.27 dropped an obsolete reference to libieee. TCL has a reference to this static library and needs to be rebuilt to remove it. Anything linking to `tcl` will currently fail.

Additional info:

There's some more information here:

which links through to the upstream commit:;a=commit;h=813378e9fe17e029caf627cab76fe23eb46815fa

Simply rebuilding the `tcl` package as-is resolves the issue.

Steps to reproduce:
Build `vim` with gcc=7.3.1+20180406-1 and glibc=2.27-2,

gcc -L. -Wl,-O1,--sort-common,--as-needed,-z,relro,-z,now -fstack-protector -rdynamic -Wl,-export-dynamic -Wl,-E -Wl,-rpath,/usr/lib/perl5/5.26/core_perl/CORE -Wl,-O1,--sort-common,--as-needed,-z,relro,-z,now -L/usr/local/lib -Wl,--as-needed -o vim objects/arabic.o objects/beval.o objects/buffer.o objects/blowfish.o objects/crypt.o objects/crypt_zip.o objects/dict.o objects/diff.o objects/digraph.o objects/edit.o objects/eval.o objects/evalfunc.o objects/ex_cmds.o objects/ex_cmds2.o objects/ex_docmd.o objects/ex_eval.o objects/ex_getln.o objects/farsi.o objects/fileio.o objects/fold.o objects/getchar.o objects/hardcopy.o objects/hashtab.o objects/if_cscope.o objects/if_xcmdsrv.o objects/list.o objects/mark.o objects/memline.o objects/menu.o objects/misc1.o objects/misc2.o objects/move.o objects/mbyte.o objects/normal.o objects/ops.o objects/option.o objects/os_unix.o objects/pathdef.o objects/popupmnu.o objects/pty.o objects/quickfix.o objects/regexp.o objects/screen.o objects/search.o objects/sha256.o objects/spell.o objects/spellfile.o objects/syntax.o objects/tag.o objects/term.o objects/terminal.o objects/ui.o objects/undo.o objects/userfunc.o objects/version.o objects/window.o objects/term_encoding.o objects/term_keyboard.o objects/term_mouse.o objects/term_parser.o objects/term_pen.o objects/term_screen.o objects/term_state.o objects/term_unicode.o objects/term_vterm.o objects/if_lua.o objects/if_perl.o objects/if_perlsfio.o objects/if_python.o objects/if_python3.o objects/if_tcl.o objects/if_ruby.o objects/netbeans.o objects/channel.o objects/charset.o objects/json.o objects/main.o objects/memfile.o objects/message.o -lm -ltinfo -lelf -lnsl -lacl -lattr -lgpm -ldl -Wl,-E -Wl,-rpath,/usr/lib/perl5/5.26/core_perl/CORE -Wl,-O1,--sort-common,--as-needed,-z,relro,-z,now -fstack-protector-strong -L/usr/local/lib -L/usr/lib/perl5/5.26/core_perl/CORE -lperl -lpthread -lnsl -ldl -lm -lcrypt -lutil -lc -L/usr/lib -ltclstub8.6 -ldl -lz -lpthread -lieee -lm
