It should.  I know there are quite a few fans of this idea on IRC that
have been talking about doing it, just for the sake of it, thou I don't
know anyone that has.

I've been a fan of the BusyBox/TinyLogin family and have been
considering switching GNU Glibc with uClibc, just to see how possible it
would be, i don't mean compiling everything static, like they seem to
have done, but actually just switching the libraries around and trying
to make as little modifications as possible on a normal LFS build.

I had taken a quick look to see how possible it is, and from what i can
tell, one could do this, the majority of standard GNU package's seem to
compile and run with uClibc both as static and dynamically linked, thou
I have heard a few problems with GNU GCC, etc.

Dunno, it would be interesting, that's for sure.. thou I have *much*
better things to work on then this ;))  (I keep telling myself that thou
*g* :)
