A standalone uClibc system is a system in which all binaries are
linked with uClibc.  Even better, a standalone uClibc development
system is a standalone uClibc system system that also includes a
nativly compiled gcc, allowing one to compile up new applications
vs uClibc.  Having a standalone uClibc development system is
_very_ useful for applications like 'autoconf' and 'automake'
that like to go and poke and prod at the host system, causing all
sorts of pain when cross-configuring and cross-compiling things.
