What does exactly prevent from linking shared libraries against libc ?
In this post [1] Warner Losh states that doing so would solve some
problems (probably the one we are talking about, albeit firefox-bin being
linked against libc.so.6 would conflict with libthr.so.2 being linked
against libc.so.7 -- how rtld(1) would handle this ?), but it will
also create so problems.  What are they ?

I've added Warner in the Cc: list.

Thank you.
