I'd like to have FESCO advice on linking ipsvd statically against
dietlibc. It is Enrico choice on the ipsvd submission

There has been a whole thread:

My personal advice is that Enrico gave right answers to the security
issues by doing a real audit of used dietlibc code. I am also confident
that he will rebuild in no time if there is a security issue in

He also gave numbers explaining why there is a big gain in efficiency.

The counter arguments were weak in my opinion, like glibc is better in
any case, or there should only be one libc. The precedence argument
which may have made sense is moot now that the guidelines explicitely 
require asking FESCO.
