I've had to put the work I was doing on hold. Bruno Haible doesn't seem
to have done much further with merging into glibc. There are
substantial problems with /usr/include. Major work is needed to get
enough of the required BSD system utilities like ps or ifconfig to
build. Nearly all of the networking headers are screwed up.
Increasingly, I wonder about going back to the native libc. and
continuing to develop things like utmpx or libshadow. Keeping glibc
working and in sync with the kernel looks like a full-time job, and I
cannot do it.

There is not.
