Argh, indeed.

I wouldn't try to combine such an only uClibc version with anything
recent, as recent programs often need features not available in older
uClibc versions.

Looking back in the git history, we removed uClibc 0.9.28 support in the
2010.08 cycle, so I think the 2010.05 release is your best bet.
