"be careful about version/header changes"?  That's the reason why this
isn't the default.  You don't have to be careful if you have an up-to-date
newlib.  If you are finding the libc.a that's installed then you'll have
to edit the Makefile to make it find the correct libc.a or you'll have to
remember to always install newlib.
