    Aboriginal is nice and Rob Landley is doing a great job. But are you
sure about uClibc. I thought Aboriginal had switched to Musl years ago.
uClibc is pretty far from POSIX compliance, and also from Glibc, which
would make the system difficult to use as a build platform, although
otherwise functional, of course. AFAIR, Rob Landley is developping his
binutils mostly because of a disagreement with Busybox license.

    Here's a comparison of C libraries (by Rich felker, the author of
musl). Unfortunately it is dated from 2014. Since that time, all
librares should have made progress.
