Is that GNU libc the one you are using? or Debian's EGNU libc?
GNU libc has been doing some improvements lately, but right now, it is

Simon, I belive, right now, we should focus on Squeeze release and
just provide a binutils/eglibc/gcc/linux cross tool. Repackaging work
is to be done.
Allowing uClibc or other libc's on the build we can discuss later, but
