Actually you should use GL_CLAMP_TO_EDGE (OpenGL 1.2 or higher,
GL_EXT_texture_edge_clamp or GL_SGIS_texture_edge_clamp). On when that is
supported should you fall back to GL_CLAMP. That is because GL_CLAMP is
to use border pixels in the filtering process and GL_CLAMP_TO_EDGE does not.
However, on earlier nVidia cards, GL_CLAMP worked as GL_CLAMP_TO_EDGE works.
(I've been told it's a hardware bug.)

Yes I suppose this would do the same trick.
