In other words, on small (embedded?) systems it would be useful to be
able to run some LSB binaries without pulling in the entire LSB core.
Does that sound like something worth supporting to you?  Perhaps we
just need some documentation somewhere like the Debian Reference or
glibc's README.Debian to explain how people can create the symlink

Anyway, I pass the report to you. :)  Thoughts of all kinds welcome.
