Ok, thanks for pointing that out.  I think we should update the wiki to
make package porters aware of the issue in general.  People should run

  opkg status libc

to find out whether there nanonote's libc is matching the toolchain
version's.  else they have to upgrade.

Also notifying the mailinglist whenever something like this happens
would help to prevent confusion.
