I agree - the advantage to uClibc is that its developers took a great deal
of trouble to maintain as much interface compatibility with glibc - a
great advantage for porting code (quite often, code will recompile with no
Other libraries that sacrifice compatibility for (usually) space are
useful for special purposes - for example, if you are only going to be
using a small subset of the C libraries for a particular project.
My sense is that we are going with a general-purpose embedded development
environment, and thus cannot predict what library features will be needed,
thus I think that uClibc would be the best way to go - at least for the
outset. This is not saying that we shouldn't explore optionally making
other libraries available, but its probably best to not stir up to much
complexity before we even have a working preliminary build.
