The easiest is probably to simply put your utilities into the klibc 
build tree, and not even worrying about installing it.

Another option is to simply set a different prefix (make prefix=...), 
and install klibc in there.  You can also set the individual 
subdirectories (libdir, bindir etc. if you prefer.)

Some distros also have a klibc-devel package which would do what you want.
