That kind of difference is consistent with my experience.  Yep, pretty 

Both libraries map out the extreme ends of the "solution space".  Glibc 
is the be-all-everything-and-then-some solution; newlib is the 
minimalist-almost-to-a-fault one.  :)  (Don't get me wrong, I *love* 
newlib but it isn't a glibc replacement).

If you want to explore a middle ground, try uClibc.
