[arch-dev-public] dash package in core?

Why is the dash package in core compiled against klibc? It is a package 
installed inside the normal system, so there is no reason to use klibc.

Furthermore, why does the package not depend on klibc? klibc packages 
have to be recompiled with almost every klibc version and there is no 
way to know which packages to recompile unless pacman -Qi klibc shows 
them. (This is another example why not adding dependencies just because 
they are in base is a bad idea). Right now, /bin/dash will not start.
