At least, not without review from a regular glibc contributor/maintainer, Eben Moglen, the author, or another authority who could state that it is the FSF's position that this does not infringe. While it seems minimal, there are other considerations: (0) If a court disagrees and rules that it is copyright infringement, what happens? (1) If it gets publicized, the potential for FUD is huge. (2) Even if it's fair use/de minimis, there is still a risk of legal action. And that alone is a big problem. In fact, the perception of a risk is a problem.
