Unfortunately we're almost guaranteed to have unknown glibc-specific
assumptions that will result in incorrect behavior at runtime hidden throughout
WebKit. I guess the first step to finding them is to make it build.

E.g. one fun problem we used to have was gspawn relied on malloc being
async-signal-safe, so subprocess launching would randomly fail with other C
libraries , but only if you're sufficiently unlucky. That was eventually fixed
in fairly recent versions of glib. Point is: similar problems will be out
