Well that's all find and dandy in the binary distro world. But we're
gentoo people ;-) binaries ? rpms ? debs ? I jedi craves not these
uClibc does not "gaurantee" binary compatability among releases. Some
of the releases keep it, some don't. I don't think it would be a big
deal to have a flag in the ebuilds that said "ABI has changed,
recompile all packages"
The storage savings in embedded systems with uClibc is worth FAR
more(to me) than the occasionaly total system recompile. Especially
