Ok. It would be good to identify whether Valgrind can be built with
uClibc with additional configuration options, or if glibc/eglibc is
really needed. In the former case, additional documentation in the
Config.in help would be good. In the latter case, some additional
"depends on" to hide valgrind when uClibc is used would be nice.
