Sure - changing libc means changing distro, with all side effects.

This could be a very time intensive task. Up to ELDK-4.2, we use a
virtual machine under Red Hat 7.3 (very old) to produce the whole
distro. This made ELDK working on a lot of distros for a long time, but
I know it cannot be produced clean with new distros.
