I have no intent of switching to the GNU libc version; not an impugnment of
his work, mind you, but one of the main reasons I bother with NetBSD is so
that I can have the native libc (and it's attendant lack of bloat).

We get further and further along the path of "dammit, we really need to
specify architectures by a kernel/arch/libc triple" :/

I'm back from Thailand, now, BTW, and will be working to get the new colo
machine for debian-bsd.lightbearer.com set up in the fairly immediate
future.
