I've been tinkering with it for a while now. It works, but I've been

Okay.  For now I'm assuming you don't want to be part of our
getting-ready-for-2.3 process.  If you do decide that you want to
participate, let me know and I'll get the pieces added to glibc's
control file for you so you can join in our testing.

Hmm. Might as well add to the control file. It looks like freebsd-i386 will probably go with glibc. Do that whenever it's convenient. My testing is probably of limited help to the rest of Debian, since the FreeBSD port of glibc is new, and not really finished.

Hopefully at some point I'll finish untangling /usr/include enough to be able to create some patches for glibc. I need to be able to build some of the BSD sources for /sbin and /usr/sbin, and at present there are a lot of things in the BSD includes that break with glibc.
