It's an embedded C library. http://sources.redhat.com/newlib/
I think more people would be interested in uClibc,
http://www.uclibc.org/, another embedded C library. I did a quick
little test trying to build a cross compiling toolchain with the
standard deb sources.
I built binutils with the patch, I got linked from this list. I then
copied the libs and headers from a previous build of uClibc into
/usr/arm-linux/, and then I tried grabbing the gcc source and following
the instructions for cross compiling by setting the environment variable
GCC_TARGET, and adding uClibc specifics into the dpatch system in gcc.
This will fail at the C++ locale build for libstdc++, and I haven't had
the time to debug this yet. There must be something different about the
stock gcc source I usually use and the patches Debian applies.
