This is not, properly speaking, a GCC issue.  The error message means
that you have a version of or that was built
on a system with a newer glibc than the one you are trying to run it
on.  glibc does not provide forward compatibility.  After you build a
shared library, you must run it on a system that has at least that
same glibc version, not an earlier one.
