re: Glibc and NetBSD

   > can't we have both?
   There's certainly no problem shipping both - what I was thinking about
   more is which do we link everything against?

i know of at least one bug in glibc that wasn't a candidate for being
fixed (last i heard.)  it's nfs_readdir() depends on an opaque cookie
being a particular style (ie, what linux does) that is not true of
virtually any other NFS server.  this manifests itself on netbsd under
linux emulation for processes doing readdir() on large directories...

perhaps initially netbsd libc - it seems to me to be much more likely
to work 100% (or close to) with the kernel.  after a lot of testing
you might want glibc for default (but i'd always hope otherwise :)
