Is that the glibc from debian experimental (2.5 is not in any other
bits of debian yet)? Have you built it all from expermental/unstable sources or
is it a mix of packages? Did you build it with crocodile, or natively
or some other way?
Yes, it's not in debian, but I asked google a bit and decided to
switch. I quess after release debian is going to follow upstream?
Currently glibc's packages are built with dpkg-cross, I'll rebuild
natively after other stuff is ready.

Do you have the patches to the sources, or the patched sources you
used? A port without that is useful for a bootstrap, but does not make
a real port :-)
yes, I did not remove sources so prepare patches then.

I have started one here:
which has 315 packges but is still missing some important ones like
glibc and gcc, due to fun and games getting them to build from debian
sources. This is almost all martin guy's work not mine. And is only
intended as a debootstrap to allow a proper pure debian rebuild. Maybe
your stuff will help here (but we have targeted different gcc and
I can put your stuff up there too if that is helpful? I see you are
not (quite) a DD yet. I'll have to ask Phil about direct access to the
box for you - it should be OK.
ok, after I prepare it.
