[uClibc] buildroot/python question

I've been using buildroot to setup a small arm-linux system. Everything
has been working really well! Before I ask my stupid questions, I have
to say I've been truly amazed how well buildroot has worked. Almost
never in my linux experience have I been able to download something,
quickly edit a config file, type make and have it all compile, let
alone actually work the first time!
What I've been working on today is getting python up and running, where
I have hit some difficulties. Google brought me to
http://uclibc.org/lists/uclibc/2004-July/009512.html from which I
downloaded the patches and got everything to build for the arm target.
Python does actually work for simple things, but where it's failing is
in some of the lib-dynload modules (mmap is the first one I hit). It's
failing as it can't find the __fxstat64 symbol when loading mmap.so.
Searching around would imply that __fxstat64 is a glibc internal
function, hence no symbol in uClibc.
So, my question would be: what do I need to change to ensure python is
fully linked against uClibc versus glibc? For as many years as I've
used make, I still suck at Makefiles, so any help would be greatly
