Unless I missed it, nobody else has mentioned the fact that making a bsd
box work with a gnu libc is a non-trivial problem. Certain utilities which
need to come from bsd (ps, netstat, etc) would almost certainly require the bsd
libc to work.
Having both libcs coexisting would also be problematic. I'm not sure
what the right solution would be. I suppose one could have do it the way
solaris does (/usr/ucbinclude, /usr/ucblib, etc). Bit icky.
It seems to me that this is one of the most fundamental issues that will
need to be resolved.
