How to compile on a GLIBC 2.3 system for GLIBC 2.2?

sorry to bother you with this silly question, but I have searched the Web,
browsed the FAQ etc. and cannot find any answer.

The problem is this: Obviously when I compile an executable on a GLIBC 2.3
system and link dynamically, it won't run on a system with GLIBC 2.2, I get
an error like this:

  /lib/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.3' not found (required by ./xxx)

Is there ANY chance to do some cross-compiling on the GLIBC 2.3 system,
so that the executable uses the older GLIBC 2.2 API and that it will
then run on the older systems? I understand that newer GLIBC versions
still contain for backwards compatibility purposes to older executables
the older API functions in any case.

Any further hints or links to this problem?

Thank you very much for any reply,
Best regards,
