That version once accompanied Marek's distribution of avr-libc (under
`experimental' or something like that).

We've at least got a copyright problem with it.  For whatever reason,
Alexander Popov blindly stuck a GPL in front of the BSD license that's
apparently inherited from the original source code.  Both are
contradicionary to some extent, and i guess nobody really using
avr-libc for their (non-hobbyist) projects is going to accept a GPL.

Anyway, my hope was to get it somewhat smaller than this version.  I
already looked at the one in my FreeBSD system, but it looks already
huge and twisted in the C code...  Well, let's see.  We can always
fall back to the BSD version (and the copyright problem could easily
be solved by simply starting to port it again straight from a BSD
