In addition to the points for NEWS I listed in
<http://sourceware.org/ml/libc-alpha/2012-05/msg00401.html> (and the Tile
point provided by Chris Metcalf), the following also belongs there:
* Improved support for cross-compilation, especially bootstrap builds
without a previously built glibc.
(Enough fixes for bootstrap builds have gone in that I think this is worth
mentioning whether or not the libgcc_s/libgcc_eh avoidance changes get in
for 2.16; it's already the case that significantly fewer hacks are needed
for bootstrap builds and in previous releases.)
