Ugh.  I don't test for ARM very often, but if I let this pass I
fear I'll have some of this forced upon me some time later as
the preferred method...

There's a fourth, less horrible way (if I understand your
problem to be what I saw for cris-elf eons ago):

Remove syscalls as you please in newlib.  In the "all" method in
libgloss, copy the corresponding objects and archives from
libgloss to newlib where dejagnu et al expects them.  See
