Re: glibc vs BSD libc


some notes about NetBSD libc:

it supports nsswitch for a long time, see here:

Dynamically loaded NSS modules are not supported.

To David Brownlee: I doubt NetBSD 1.0 binary could run against 
a NetBSD 1.6 libc. They don't care much about binary compatibility. You
could not even run a statically linked 1.0 app without some COMPAT_
option in the kernel, I think.

And, if there are things like funopen(), why do Gnome hackers invent
their own APIs like gnome-vfs? Does somebody actually use funopen()?
Does it really work?
