The code was originally imported to fulfill EL/IX standard work.  There is no 
problem with licensing of this code, however, there are some system calls used 
that don't exist in the shared newlib space.  For example, pipe, fork, execl, 
stat, lstat, and waitpid.  Do you wish to take a stab at creating a version that 
can be shared with restricted functionality on vanilla-newlib platforms?
