Think you could port BSD libc to Linux without making a mess?
considering that we (netbsd) basically have a source-compat layer

and easier than you may otherwise think.
Could be. I know my way around FreeBSD's libc somewhat, but not
NetBSD's, so I guess I should have been more specific to it.
The BSD libc is smaller for about the same reason that dietlibc or uLibc
on Linux are smaller. Those libc's don't attempt to be portable (across
kernels), and they certainly don't attempt to comply with all the
standards that glibc does.
you may be surprised at how portable & standards-encompasing the
NetBSD libc & friends are.
I suspect it's more portable than FreeBSD's.
