The release after Etch requires glibc 2.4/2.5, which means porting the
Native POSIX Threading Library.
As I understand it, the problem is that Thread Local Storage needs to be
implemented in-kernel, and then __thread support could be done in GCC, and
only then can a glibc boffin port NPTL and current glibc. I don't know if
binutils is implicated too. Anyway, it is non-trivial (if not onerous).
