Indeed, some investigations with nm and perl show that basically all of the
core (libc12) libraries depend on libc for some set of their functions.

The only odd bits are libutil (which depends on libposix for chown, easy
enough to link) and libc, which has the undefined symbols '__progname' and
'environ' (both appear to come from crt0.o, which is not terribly suprising
I guess).
