Not sure if I understand you. All I want is to run my program in CentOS but
my program in compiled in Debian. A much easier solution would be to simply
compile my program in CentOS but I do not have permission to do this. So, I
was thinking of making my program use the libc and ld files of Debian
instead of the ones provided by CentOS.

Is this not possible ? Is there another way of doing this ?
