Frankly, I don't know. But I can tell you I'll keep working on the Glibc-based
port since it produced good results so far. I've done something with Glibc in
months, that took years to produce with NetBSD libc.
We'll get to discuss that at some point. For now, I invite everyone to try
the Glibc-based system and see the results.
