Ok, let's get this straight ...

1.) If you think "linuxulator is bugged at a 'low' level", whatever this
should mean, then please be specific about it, but please do so where it
is on topic, e.g. in a PR on bugzilla.

2.) A very frequent issue when trying to run some Linux binary on
FreeBSD is that shared libs are either missing or too old (which is btw
why many people resort to installing some other dist in some Linux jail
instead of using the linux-c7 ports). So, *of course* a newer userland
will fix this. The uncertainty here is just whether it can be a feasible
approach to build this userland from source. Ongoing research.

Cheers, Felix
