Porting newlib to a very limited platform

Hi all,

I'm trying to make a "write or port" decision for a limited embedded
platform I'm working on.  In particular, file I/O is only available in
sequential, block-oriented, readonly fashion.

No dynamic library support, so the size of binaries matter.

So the question is if people here would have a feel for if it would be
easier to attempt to port newlib, or if it would be better to write my
own small libc from scratch...
