no doubt. i just asked because according to glibc docs this library should be 
extremely portable.

oops, this is a problem then, we can't do this for sure. let's add the reply 
about ram-hungry programs and... no way.

no no, i didn't ask because i'm missing something... i was just curious since 
i see from time to time glibc updated version XY, new features, bugfixes etc 
and mintlib development is still silent. so maybe we have 100% bugfixed libc 
who knows ;)
