diet libc - a libc optimized for small size

The diet libc is a C library that is optimized for small size. It can be used to create small statically linked binaries for Linux on alpha, arm, ia64, mips, mipsel, ppc, parisc, s390, sparc and x86.

This package is used to compile programs with the diet libc.

The diet libc also supports dynamic linking, but this has been temporarily disabled because of problems with it.
