There's a package called 'statifier'. If you can get it to work (it works, 
with patience), that will link all dependency libraries into programs and 
shared libraries. This way you can run ati's xorg libraries which are linked 
to glibc, on a uclibc host without glibc libraries. You can even use glibc 
files from a distro if you don't have them available.
