Which makes it easier to install uClibc and musl and bionic next to each other? (You can have /lib/musl and /lib/uClibc and /lib/bionic for most of the .so and .a files, but the dynamic linker is a hardwired abspath in each binary and then the linker would be what searches the more specific path...) > One thing that's not in the current roadmap is additional ports.

Real life continues to intrude into my schedule, but I'm slowly working towards this. Until musl supports all the targets aboriginal does now, I can't drop uClibc support, and klibc has some code I can start with to get to "hello world" level... Rob
