I concluded some tests on my PPA  and I find a possible fix for
dietlibc and the packages which depends on it, as I reported in the
related spec .
I'm going to upload a new dietlibc package after Alpha 1 release and,
once fully built on all ports, manage rebuilds of the packages which
depends on it . If you are intrested in one of the package involved,
feel free to report additional comments/tests you feel important.
Also, please inform me as soon as possible if you are aware of a better
solution to fix this issue.
