strange, uClibc is typically the least problematic libc.

I can definitely build it with a uclibc toolchain, all it needs is -lrt
in skalibs configure when testing for posix_spawn* and later whenever -lskalibs
is used.

It does not work though. What I have so far is this:

    execve("/usr/sbin/s6-echo", ["s6-echo", "--", "Starting system."], ...)
    execve("s6-echo", ["s6-echo", "--", "Starting system."], ...)
    execve("s6-echo", ["s6-echo", "--", "Starting system."], ...)
    execve("s6-echo", ["s6-echo", "--", "Starting system."], ...)
    execve("s6-echo", ["s6-echo", "--", "Starting system."], ...)

and it keeps repeating that execve in an infinite loop.

That's execline running /sbin/init.
The first if and the first occurence of a { } block in that script.
Strange, but I did not look further into this yet.

The worst part will be dealing with per-package service files.
I did try doing similar thing. Ended up with all my stuff in BR2_EXTERNAL,
this way it's much easier to keep Buildroot proper up to date.
