FreeBSD linking against libc_r instead of libc
Wed May 19 09:29:00 GMT 1999

I submitted a fixed freebsd-elf.h a couple of weeks ago and never got a
response about it. What form should I submit it in so that it is easiest
to incorporate?

This is not a criticism, but a comment on economic reality: Cygnus has a
much stronger vested interest in Linux than in FreeBSD. Cygnus is before
all else a commercial entity and thus has to prioritize where its efforts
are placed. I just think it fortunate that they are able to contribute to
the community as a whole.
