Subject: Building libc separately from libm,librt,libpthread and others


Can you please help with reducing the size of statically linked libc.a
library ?
Whereas the comparison table located in
claims the size of complete .a set as 333k, I got around 2M while building
the library on x86_64 with gcc version 4.1.1.
I suppose that might be caused by including in libc.a  object files that
belong to libm, librt, libpthread and others.
Am I right ?
Is there any way to compile libc.a solely ?
