Can all gentoo users please try out ebuild from here:
Please thrash it and pass feedback. Probably the default config
creation stuff is flawed, I don't use it, so feedback appreciated.
Please also experiment with the iconv stuff (and enable appropriate
config options). The patches there allow uclibc iconv and locale to
build actually *on* a uclibc system (so you can bootstrap from
nothing). iconv is imperfect (git has a decent test), but shows promise
With this version of uclibc and nptl, at least on x86 I can build pretty
much anything I tried with at most minor build tweaks needed. Glib
builds fine, gettext works ok (although you need to pick your version),
I can build avahi for example (needs a bunch of tricky dependencies).
Hardened works completely on x86 (and some others) - you will need a
slightly tweaked gcc ebuild to unlock SSP, but even the in-tree builds
apply PIE. Fantastic work from the uclibc guys!
Gentoo is massively blocked on an old uclibc - please test this version
and hopefully with some positive feedback Mike will consider pushing it
(or Anthony Basile may push forward a simpler ebuild - either way it's a
