re: Glibc and NetBSD

   Think you could port BSD libc to Linux without making a mess?

considering that we (netbsd) basically have a source-compat layer
for netbsd software on linux, this actually is a whole lot simplier
and easier than you may otherwise think.
   The BSD libc is smaller for about the same reason that dietlibc or uLibc 
   on Linux are smaller. Those libc's don't attempt to be portable (across 
   kernels), and they certainly don't attempt to comply with all the 
   standards that glibc does.

you may be surprised at how portable & standards-encompasing the
NetBSD libc & friends are.
