I am really annoyed by the fact that almost nothing builds against klibc.
Wouldn't it be easier to switch to uclibc and busybox? Both are much
more powerful and we wouldn't need static binaries for lvm, cryptsetup
or mdadm. We would also have much less problems with all the ABI changes
that happen with klibc.
I thought we needed a complete toolchain for that, but Jan claimed that
it is possible to use our normal gcc and binutils for that.
