Yes it is possible, but it is ugly, you do not want to go down that road
if at all possible. There should be a versioned libc version of the last
Rebel.com release (dm 3.1-15) out shortly. Mainly waiting for the final
release of glibc 2.1.3. Oh, and gdb is currently broken with glibc 2.1.3

What exactly are you looking for? If you are looking for the netwinder
patches against XFree86 they are available (or let me know if you simply
want the arm patch, and I can extract it.)
Or do you want a precompiled SVGA server to start with? I have one which
is linked against a versioned glibc, just let me know and I can put it up.
Hope this help,
