There currently doesn't seem to exist any 'libc' like thing for programs which

gdb). It seems to be that using newlib would be the obvious candidate, and
I'll return to you any improvements that I make.
I have looked at the newlib distribution and it seems that I'd need to add

Currently libgloss/ doesn't support the Arm at all so I will have some config
hacking to do.
Actually, newlib has the necessary syscall stuff for arm programs to run
on the ARMulator.
[It use to be the case that this stuff lived in newlib. Then, libgloss
was created to hold this stuff, but the arm port of newlib hasn't been
