I'm not sure I can really recommend pdclib; it was easy for me to build
and is sufficient for what I'm building, but it's far from a 'great'
libc. And, upstream seems to have abandoned it.

I don't think I want to use the gcc newlib integration though; I'd
rather have libc packaged separately and not linked to gcc at
all. However, I do think any newlib packaging should respect the
multi-lib stuff in the gcc build so that -lc would 'just work' with the
appropriate compiler flags.

I've git it on alioth; could easily move to collab maint.
